Beverley Liberal Democrat Councillors have handed in a petition, on behalf of residents, with over 100 signatures saying ‘NO’ to plans ninety new homes to be built on Poplars Way.
Local Lib Dem Councillor Tom Astell said;
“In signing this petition, residents have sent a clear signal to the planning committee that this development is not welcome. Two years ago, the local conservative councillors backed the development’s outline planning permission through the back door. It’s time for residents’ views to be heard.”
“The only access point to the new development for HGVs and construction traffic is through a quiet residential area and directly next to a children’s play area. These are not acceptable to the local community.”
‘The disturbance to the lives of local residents will be considerable, as the development like this will take many months to complete, meaning resident’s quality of life will be negatively impacted for an unacceptable length of time.”
Councillor Peter Astell added;
“The access to the proposed development is also close to a popular children’s play area, which is used by families from the local area. We are asking the council to conduct a full health and safety report in order to safeguard children and families who use the pay area.”
There is still time for residents to add their signature to the petition, which can be found at www.eastridinglibdems.com
