Planning Committee Refuses Police College Development

Rate this item
(10 votes)

A packed public gallery at the Council Chamber heard the Head of Planning Development & Control argue the case for approval of the Linden Homes development proposals for the Police College site in Green Street. The recommendation for approval was countered by a well argued case put by a long standing resident representing the Police College Development Action Group and four local ward councillors. Principal among the objections concerned the density, considered to be too high, and access to the site. After much deliberation the Planning Committee determined that the application should be refused on a majority of 10 - 5.

It is understood that Linden Homes will now be considering its options and whether or not to appeal the Committee's decision. This site will be updated just as soon as more is known.

    Thank you to our ward councillors and all those on the planning committee who spoke so powerfully against the overdevelopment of this site and had so clearly taken on board the residents' concerns.
