09/01/13 - Rosie Cooper MP statement on Chequer Lane development

At the last planning committee residents’ issues and concerns about this development on Chequer Lane were not listened to. Time and again residents have demonstrated the strength of their opposition to these plans but the Council have continued to ignore their views even after the first application was rejected.


I have worked closely with Chequer Lane residents over many months. But, as I have said previously, it is clear the developer was going to pursue this application very aggressively.


I would call on the Planning Committee to listen to local residents but sadly, I can’t see anything changing when the decision comes before the planning committee again.
