Bar Lane development
The housing development on Bar Lane will go ahead. There have been several issues with the consultation process: Residents are concerned about the lack of response to their opinions, and the lack of opportunities to voice them. This has been taken further by the local Councillors. In the meantime we are looking at keeping the S106 money of about £100,000 in the direct local area, instead of it being used at Thornes Park. The developer has to pay this because no open space is offered on the site.
