Public Consultation Boards

Consultation Feedback

Key Points Raised

  • 1 supportive, 6 undecided and 11 unsupportive of the proposal in the survey.
  • No-one surveyed uses the garage site
  • Current site is seen as an eyesore with problems of flytipping and security problems.
  • 2 Residents  were very unhappy about the proposals. Resident A expressed that ‘she will want to be bought out if this goes ahead’ in survey.

Key Concerns Raised

  • Proposed 3 storey properties too high
  • Concern on noise level increase through new residents (eg. Children playing outside)
  • Reduced sunlight and privacy in neighbouring gardens
  • Too many units for the space available


  • In favour for single to two storey units similar to the development of the backland on Bates Crescent nearby
  • Single storey units could be used for those who wish to downsize from bigger properties.
  • In favour for housing for social rent or elderly/vunerable residents. Resistance to private sale.
  • Concern if boundary wall will be replaced at same height.
  • Some of the Blake Court residents support the development of a corner shop, they feel there is a need of a close shopping opportunity for the area.
  • Residents felt that 3 bed family houses are not appropriate for the site for many reasons (if more than one car is required per unit it increases parking stress on the street, increase density and the effect this has on house prices.
  • Noise of cars using the alley and passing bedrooms, resident suggested electric cars instead.
  • Residents are wondering what is happening to the disuse substation and alley to the south of the property.
