Midas Homes Development.

There was a good turn out in the village hall for the meeting about the Midas Homes Development.
The proposal was for a residential development providing a mixture of accommodation ranging from 1 bedroom dwellings to 4 bedroom houses with up to 35% affordable.
There were strong feelings with regard to the application which was slipped in two days before a 50% affordable houses policy came into effect!
Major concerns were voiced about the proposed narrowing of the sometimes very busy Longstone Road, together with a dangerous pedestrian access on a bend.
There were concerns about drainage and surface water collection.
The density of housing was felt to be too high and there were fears that the majority of the housing would sell to second home owners and be of no benefit to the village.
The application was for outline permission only and there is ample opportunity to influence the developers final plans.
You can telephone them on Freephone 08001698766 with any questions or write to them at:
Exhibition Response
16 Brunswick Place
SO15 2AQ
Your Parish Council hopes that you will write with your feedback to both Midas Homes and NCDC Planning Offices.
