With regard to the planning committee meeting on February 22.
I raised objections on behalf of the community - on the basis it should have been included within the bigger development scheme, that perfectly good trees were being removed and the impact on the road network. However, the Planning Committee agreed to permit the application.
Focus will now turn to old Sterne Mills site. The area is brown field, so there is advantage in some form of development/cleanup of the site. However, the infrastructure is currently not in place to support it. Until this is resolved, I can see no merit in any scheme.
