Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon opposes Wingates Lane development

Plans for 58 houses at Hartley’s Farm, off Wingates Lane, must be thrown out again, town councillor Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon has said.

Last year the Wingates councillor teamed up with residents to fight against the application and the plans were rejected.

The applicant has appealed but instead of waiting for the decision by the Planning Inspector, they have submitted the plans to the council once again.

Bernadette and residents are working together once again in a bid to stop the new planning application.

She said: “I can’t believe the developers had the audacity to submit another planning application.

“The proposed access onto Wingates Lane is totally unsuitable. It is a narrow road with traffic problems already. This would cause even more issues and would also add pressure on the infrastructure of the town for doctors and school places.

“I am supporting residents in the fight against this development which would inevitably lead to the opening up of the area of land off the A6 and between the motorway for a possible 1,000 houses.”
