The Land Development Agency is kicking off the process for the development of 1,200 units on the 11.3 hectare CMH site. They are delivering leaflets to 5,000 homes within 1km of the site, and they want to hear the views of the local community regarding what things should be prioritised. They’ve put a short survey on their website, and we strongly encourage you to complete it. It is very short, and only takes a few minutes. They are planning three different consultation periods as the design process progresses, this being the first. They are aiming to lodge a planning application mid 2021.
What things are most important to you? A few ideas: adequate public open space/new park, downsizer/elderly accommodation, pedestrian/cyclist permeability, traffic issues, preservation of the unique Victorian architecture on the site, community centre etc. We also believe there is a small swimming pool on the site, and some impressive gardens.
This development will have a big impact on our area, so let them know what you think.
