When we first received our letters from the Council’s Planning office that EEH had submitted their planning application to build on the estate, Ennerdale House did a petition which got signatures from 55 households (out of 90).
This was the wording:
We object to EastendHomes’ proposals for private development on the Eric and Treby estates’ open spaces.
This proposal will put buildings too close together and take away our daylight, sunlight, privacy, green space and play space. The area is too densely developed with demolition and new build, like the development on British Street estate, and more planned on St Clements and Southern Grove. We need good quality publicly owned rented housing and no more private luxury flats.
We will hand in the petition Monday 11 May – by hand at the Town Hall. We will do another round of signature collection Friday afternoon and again over the weekend, so keep an eye out for us.
