Peel developers hit out
7:00am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
DEVELOPERS behind plans to build homes on Peel Hall have voiced their disappointment at no talks with politicians opposed to their scheme.
Satnam Millennium has put forward a planning application to build up to 150 homes on the site off Mill Lane and addressed members of Winwick Parish Council.
But the company says it also wanted to talk to councillors from Poulton North and Warrington North MP Helen Jones, who are all opposed to the plans.
Colin Griffiths of Satnam said: “We are disappointed that the local ward councillors and Helen Jones MP, despite their opposition to these plans, have refused to engage with us. We are committed to working with all interested parties on this development to ensure that the best possible scheme is delivered.
“Our open invitation for them to meet with us and discuss their issues and concerns still stands.”
Satnam will invest more than £1million on the playing fields at Windermere Avenue working with Winwick Athletic Football Club should the plans be approved.
Mr Griffiths added: “We were grateful for the opportunity to present our proposals to the parish council and we hope that we were able to address some of their concerns, such as the status of the site.
“Some members of the council seemed to be under the impression that the site is in the green belt, which it is not nor has it ever been. We were also able to answer other questions such as those on the provision of affordable housing and how the local highways network will cope with the development.”
