On Friday 15 October last, I called in to the Planning Dept. to query a letter that I had received from a firm of chartered surveyors in London, concerning a proposed development to the BT site in York Road (and Church Road).
Nothing was known of this in the department, at that site. However, my neighbours and I have since had a meeting with Mr. Ian Absolon representing Schatunowski Brooks, for Crest Homes.
It seems that they are proposing to build 3 blocks of flats in all, 2 immediately opposite, facing York Road (3 storey high), and a further block to replace the BT building, which is to be demolished. This creates 38 flats in all - access only from York Road.
We would like to know the procedure, should planning permission be sought. Presumably all those in the area, who would be affected by such a development, will be notified and given the opportunity to express their views and opinions. Also that objections will be given serious considerations.
