Plans for 80 homes in Speen
Social housing provider says recent consultation drew broad support for the proposed Kersey Crescent development
A SOCIAL housing provider has said that the views of Speen residents on plans for 80 residential units in Kersey Crescent has been broadly supportive.
Dozens of residents arrived at Robert Sandilands School on October 5 to view and give feedback on plans for the new development proposed by housing association Sovereign South+West.
Sovereign spokesman Roy Probert said after the consultation: “The fact is that it is currently pretty grim up there, so most people would like to see the current development replaced, but the point of the consultation is that we want people to be happy with the plans, which will make it easier for us to obtain planning permission.”
Sovereign neighbourhood services manager Matthew Hensby said: “This consultation event was an important step in the proposed redevelopment of Kersey Crescent.”
One more consultation event will be held before the plans are submitted to the district council next year.
