Warrington North MP hits back in Peel Hall developer row
10:50am Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in News
LABOUR councillors have hit back at the comments from Peel Hall developers Satnam Millennium who said they were disappointed politicians had not met with them.
Warrington North MP Helen Jones along with Poplars and Hulme’s Clr John Kerr-Brown, Clr Steve Roberts, Brian Maher and Poulton North Clr Billy Lines-Rowlands have spoken out.
The company, who want to build up to 150 homes on land off Windermere Avenue, last week said they were let down by the lack of talks from politicians against their scheme.
But Ms Jones said: “Satnam seem unable to understand the simple fact that there is no room for negotiation on this matter.
“I am opposed to any development on the site and the vast majority of the public in the area who will be most affected are opposed to it.
“I made a pledge to my voters that I would oppose any plans for development at Peel Hall and I intend to stick to that pledge.
"That is my publicly stated position and I would have thought it self evident that there is nothing to talk about.
“I fail to see what is so difficult for them to grasp with that position.”
The councillors also issued a joint statement: “We fought elections on the basis that we would oppose developing Peel Hall.
"The public living in the area have indicated, in massive numbers and on several occasions, that they are opposed to any development and we will continue to reflect the views of the people who elected us.”
