This morning along with my colleagues, Cllr Steve Williams and Cllr Simon Mountney I held a street surgery in Bermuda Road with local residents coming to chat about the proposal to build 6 semi detached houses on the derelict site at 91 Bermuda Road
In the hour and half we were there about 50 residents turned up to look at the plans and discuss the application. I have to say the feedback was mostly positive, with only one person who seemed totally opposed to this application, for what reasons I don’t know, he never said, just mumbled on in an aggressive manner.
The main area of concern was not the building of the six homes it was about the demolition of the xisting buildings and fear about asbestos. I will ask the Councils planning officers to make sure that if the application is approved then conditions are put in place to ensure the demolition process causes as little as possible disturbance to local residents. More on this as information becomes available
