Hagley homes application granted

BROMSGROVE planners gave the green light to a controversial scheme for a housing estate in Hagley at a packed planning meeting this evening, (January 7).

Villagers were vocal in their opposition during the meeting, held at the Council House, Burcot Lane, where the district council’s planning committee gave its verdict on the proposal by Cala Homes to build the 175-home development on a site in Kidderminster Road, owned by the Hagley Hall estate.

Protestors had previously shown their opposition to the proposal at a march last September, and through a 4,000-name petition against the scheme.

Speakers on both sides made passionate arguments for and against the scheme.

Following a lengthy debate of the committee members, the application was granted on a vote of 10-2.

Well, that is right decision at last! It was well worth the wait . Now lets see how the protestors react to that. I have stood and maintained my point for the need for housing being publicly decried and endured insults and personal remarks, yet fact and evidence stands and the result speaks for itself, now lets get those improvements and housing in place eh!

Quote from one of the councillors who voted to approve.... "I do not look forward to driving on this island.... it will I am sure become known as 'Hell Island'.... a child will inevitably be injured.... stressed drivers will run the amber lights... I approve"!!

Just about sums up the amount of common sense applied to this decision.
