Petition Tag - durkan estates
Durkan estates have applied for planning permission to amend the approved development at gun Wharf (Old ford Road) by adding an extra floor from 4 to 5 and reducing the number of affordable houses in the scheme to 0. Whilst at the same time reducing their contribution to support its impact on the local infrastructure through section 106 by 59% from £7296 per unit to £3000.
They claim that their reasons for doing this is that the development is currently not economically viable. In essence leaving the local community to deal with the consequences of a commercial developers poor financial planning. I hope you will agree that this is shocking!!
More details on the history of the development can be found at http://gunwharf.wordpress.com/ and the application can be viewed in full at http://184.108.40.206/WAM/findCaseFile.do?appNumber=PA/09/02543&action=Search PA/09/02543
