Update on Neighbouring Lands & Drainage issue

The development land next to our estate were the proposed amenity centre is due to be built has been sold to the property company ‘Ardstone Capital’.  They plan to develop a commercial amenity centre and the remaining residential units along Stocking Avenue.  This is good news as finally we will have some local shops, amenities and the remaining lands will be developed on for residential housing.  Although the original planning has expired and the new planning application has not been submitted to the council as yet, we have heard that they plan to start around June period.  This maybe optimistic but let’s see.

The committee have been aware of excessive water leaking out from the ground onto Stocking Avenue at the pedestrian exit near the Copse.  In tandem with our agent, we have been working on this topic over the past few days.  The Council have confirmed that the flooded area will be drained by them on Monday, weather permitting.  The issue lies in the field next to the southern part of the estate.
