There was standing room only in St. Nicholas’ Church as an extraodinary parish council meeting was called to discuss the plans submitted by Gladman Developments.
Potterspury has spoken out in force against the proposed building of 195 homes on the land off Sanders Lane, to the north of the village. Steve Parkin chaired a meeting that was attended by Rupert Fordham, from South Northamptonshire Planning, representatives from Yardley Gobian Parish Council and well over 200 residents of Potterspury, united in their opposition to the Gladman Development.
Many valid points were raised including:
- Serious concerns over traffic levels, both locally and on the A5
- The ability of the school to cope with the increased number of children
- The continued flooding that the site is subject to
- The condition of the drainage and sewerage and it’s abillity to cope with the additional houses
- Concerns for the safety of road users
Residents have been encouraged to write and register their objection via the SNC planning portal before the deadline of 31st January 2015 http://snc.planning-register.co.uk/plandisp.aspx?recno=73949
