We have had some time to read the planning application and rightly there are concerns and questions over it.
The long established Beacon Action Group now have a web presence and you can read their views on the following links
They are planning a public meeting and I will let you know the details as soon as they publish them.
There is a lot of positions within this situation ranging from no building at all to accepting the plans as they are. there are legitimate concerns of course and these are well explained by the Group.
However there are other issues around the whole area, that should be discussed around this, these are
– The security of the current NetherHall residents
– The failure of Bovis Homes to complete what the original planning application said
– The impact on Park Farm residents, which is not mentioned
I will state again that I am personally still minded to support the application.
The Beacon Action Group have managed to get an extension to comments referring to the application due to the timing of the application over Xmas.
This is good news and still gives time for a debate but there are many fixed positions in this that will never be happy. We have to appreciate that and try and get the best result for all.
