Protestors ready for Peel Hall fight
9:20am Monday 4th March 2013 in News
THE controversial history of Peel Hall will take another turn this week.
Councillors will meet on Thursday in the Parr Hall to give their verdict on plans for 150 homes on the land off Mill Lane.
But as previously reported in the Warrington Guardian, they do so knowing developers Satnam have already called for a public inquiry as council planners did not deal with the application on time.
Clr Geoff Settle, who is a member of the planning committee, said: “I have been against this development ever since the applicant bulldozed the area back in 2000.
“He destroyed much of the rich wildlife at the time and now proposes to concrete over a totally unsuitable location for such a development.
“The applicant’s plans and timing are highly suspect and don’t stand up under scrutiny.”
The Fight Against Peel Hall Development committee has met to discuss its speeches for the Parr Hall planning meeting which starts at 6.30pm.
The committee was formed during a series of meetings across the three wards that will be most affected by the proposed development A spokesman said “There has been a tremendous wave of support to fight this development sited off Mill Lane.
“It is inappropriate, ill-conceived and unsustainable – we don’t want it – we live in a lovely village and we don’t want the only access road to become a rat run.”
Two Facebook sites have been set up, ‘Woodlandwildlife against the development of Radley Common’ and ‘Fight against Peel Hall Development’. The Woodlandwildlife has signed up nearly 1,000 members since it was set up in November.
Leaflets and posters and placards on sticks for your garden can be obtained from the Fearnhead Community Centre.
