Westwood Avenue residents have their current MP Eric Pickles and his communities department to thank for dumping TWELVE houses in their back gardens after a five year fight came to a crushing end a couple of weeks ago.
For five years or more, I have fought with residents to stop this development and have halted a number of inappropriate developments of three, four, five houses and these have all been refused and upheld. But TWELVE well, that’s fine, according to Mr Pickles’ jolly old team!
We know that this will be a nightmare for residents in Westwood Avenue, Elm Way, Manor Way, west Park Hill and Westway as well as those in Kavanaghs Road that will have it to view from their back windows too. The additional cars, the proximity to the railway and the sheer over-development is going to cause problems…we have seen it all before.
It’s unbelievable that the Tories have today put out an election leaflet claiming to be against over-development but look at this, Rollason Way, Clements Park and Highwood Hospital….all on their watch and see who is really protecting our town.
