Housing Development: Bidder Presentations – 21 Mar 09

21st March 2009: Three companies bidding to build the major housing development proposed at Moor Lane presented design proposals to residents during a consultation with local residents.

The presentations were made at the Moorcroft Centre on the 21st March, between 11am and 4pm, to review the three developer’s proposals.

There was a massive turn-out at the event with residents raising strong concerns about:

  • The density of the proposed housing development.
  • The access routes to the site and impact on local traffic.
  • The lack of facilties on the site.
  • The lack of planning gain for existing residents.
  • The lack of concern about potential flooding and other negative impacts on the local environment.

The event was featured in the local press and an article can be found here: under a headline of “Big doubts over scheme“.
