COOKLEY WORKS

 

As recently as 2015 the local council has rejected planning permission for 70 affordable houses on the 5.4 acre former Chorus Steel site, empty since its 2004 closure, due, in thier view, to insurmountable safety issues.

 

We contend that no issue is insurmountable and as there are three potential entrances to the site, it could be disign in three parts that do not interconnect to keep traffic flow increases to a minimum. Especially if a small station car park and footpath to Fens Pool the other side of the canal were created, reducing housing to say 50 units.

 

The council should negotiate solutions, not stand intransigently in the way of much needed housing that could be built on a brown field site.
