Really glad bus station progressing. Know it's not everybody's ideal for the site, but better than what's there and homes for 12 families.

As noted in a number of letters of representations, the location of the site and limited facilities does not lend itself to the provision of housing for families with young children or for the elderly or disabled. Therefore if the proposal is to be considered acceptable it must be demonstrated that there is a strong demand not just for affordable housing in general, but for the specific type of tenure that would be provided by the type of flats proposed within a site which offers limited amenity for residents.Amenity/ residential use: The flats are not considered to be suitable for families with young children or for the elderly due to lack of amenity space, lift access and location. That said, their town centre location and close proximity to public transport, retail and other amenities would make them highly suitable for many single adults or couples looking to benefit from such a central location and proximity to services without the need to maintain garden ground. So, not 12 families then!
You can tell he's a LibDem. No vision, no principles, and will endorse anything which might get a bit of short-term popular support.He can't even get the facts right. There will be 16 flats, not 12, and they are specifically not for families because they are small affordable apartments.
Yes, forgot all about that, there was a change. No shop at the bottom now so another 4 flats.
And only a stone's throw from 'Bermuda Triangle' too. Purrfect...By the way, what exactly is a Vodka Jellie? P XX
