Developer submits building plans for Peel Hall
11:49am Monday 17th September 2012 in News
DEVELOPER Satnam has submitted plans to build 150 homes on land at Peel Hall.
The proposals were submitted to Warrington Borough Council just over a week ago.
Warrington North MP Helen Jones has called on local residents to make their voices heard over the controversial scheme.
Ms Jones said: “I have been campaigning for years to prevent unwanted and inappropriate development near to people’s homes on land at Peel Hall. The developer Satnam has now submitted a planning application to build 150 homes, flood-lights and sports facilities on Peel Hall and I am calling on local residents to make their voices heard by responding to the council’s consultation.
“Over 1,000 people have signed my petition against plans to develop land at Peel Hall. This proposal does not offer the affordable housing that Warrington needs and the impact on local residents through increased traffic and the loss of green spaces is unacceptable.
“I wrote to local residents in July with information showing that Satnam have long-term plans to develop land at Peel Hall over a number of phases which could lead to the building of as many as 1,400 houses. I believe that if the initial application to build 150 properties on Peel Hall is approved then this will lead to more and more houses being built on the land. That is why it is essential that as a community we show that this development is not wanted.”
Residents now have until October 3 to respond to the council’s consultation on the planning application.
The planning application can be found at warrington.gov.uk and following the links to the planning application directory.
The application number is 2012/20610 or it can be found by searching for ‘Peel Hall’.
