Planning Ref: 12/01887/HYB

http://cominoweb.wakefield.gov.uk/Planning/lg/GFPlanningViewDocumentInDialog.page

Now is the time to have your say if you disagree with the planning application filed at WMDC and now on line. For so much concern there are so far only 2 objections. Interestingly one is from Featherstone District Cllr Graham Isherwood who writes on behalf of Cllr June Cliffe. If they were so bothered why has Cllr June not made the time to write her own thoughts as a letter? As for Cllr Dick his name is not mentioned probably because he is on the planning committee. Yet Cllr Dick has been out today posting leaflets about the application. Is this legal?
One thing for sure from the information given is that this will be phase one by hook or crook so that minor amendments can then be made to get exactly what the developers wish. And if anyone complains all they have to do is quote one of many Featherstone planning disasters such as Lidle.
Its time to put pen to paper and send to,

Planning Department
Wakefield Council
Wakefield One
PO Box 700
Wakefield WF1 2EB

Or by email to, devcontrol@wakefield.gov.uk

Mine has gone in:
I hereby officially submit my objection to the housing development Planning Ref: 12/01887/HYB on the following basis:
1.Featherstone already has huge traffic problems and we have been refused a bypass. This will increase the problem and put the lives of children especially at risk.
2.The infrastructure of Featherstone is already stretched to the limit. Who is going to provide extra schools and doctors surgeries for the influx of people when authorities are already making cutbacks in education and the NHS?
3.The housing will not be affordable to the local people and therefore would eventually increase the population of the town by 2000 people. We don't have the room for an increase of this proportion.
4.The sewers were not designed for an increase of usage to this degree. The contractors have not indicated that they will upgrade our already failing sewage system. Future problems will arise because of this.

Didn’t the P&C print this had just passed?
WMDC planning still shows “Pending”?

Hope they are aware of the water vole colony by the beck. I don't mean the rat infested beck by the path through from PO road to Jubilee steps.

Take a closer look at the pond that has gone missing. It is replaced with curves of water. Apparently a pond would have a drowning risk. Shame that local kids loose a free fishing venue over mad health and safety.
Should we assume all WMDC ponds are to be filled in?
But hey, who cares? Roll Eyes

Some healthy looking trees by the look at the stumps and off cuts. By the sounds of it work is ready to start and is held up by road works. Looks like road works followed by road works.

According to the plans the green BT box in the picture is about the dead centre of the entrance.

The new  sign as just been put up on the land opposite the junction hotel,building to start shortley on the new development of housing (colliery court) so get ready for all the dust and grime and the traffic going and coming of the site. 
 
Old Stonian
Maybe I am wrong, but it seems to be in the way of the access road, unless that is nearer to the "Jubilee Steps" footpath than I thought. 
 



Have to agree with the sign location being in the way, but hey considering what is exactly being built on the Girnhill Estate compared to the plans anything could happen.

How does the song go?
There were rats, rats and big as bleeding ships in the stores in the stores..........
Sadly they are not in the stores but the Victoria Estate. As the ground work began on the new estate rats and mice have flooded in to the area. Considering only a small amount of work has taken place you can assume a plague of the same is to be disturbed shortly. It appears in a panic after months of requests by residents and Featherstone Rovers that the beck at the end of Post Office Road has finally been cleared out in part. WMDC should have put a gag on the workmen as they were very informative. WMDC did not wont the blame for the migration of the rat population presently in habitation from Post office Road to Jubilee Steps. Roll Eyes

I am old enough to have sung the song over 70 years ago. The rats were as big as cats. It has to rhyme.

Sorry Old Stonian you are right it was cats back then. 70 years on they are now as big as dogs. Grin
Looks like the sign was in the wrong place after all as it has now been moved to open the entrance. Shouldn't the junction have be altered before traffic turns in to the new estate. Should be interesting for a while.

It looks like the footpath from the chippie to the Junction Hotel is being widened. Anybody know why, and is there a plan anywhere for the new crossroads?

An interesting question. Many people will have not bothered to look at the WMDC planning applications. If you do you may be shocked to read how many "MINOR AMMENDMENTS" there are. Yes the con is to pass a basic plan and then change it as you go along to what you really wish to build. Obviously there is no influence from the cash that is released as building starts that "SOME" Cllrs can influence to spend.
There is another "MINOR AMMENDMENT" in at the moment for the site. Sure there will be many more.
As for the lights/ roundabout, the latest plans in planning show none, just a junction..........
How many changes can you see so far and also what has been left out?

Being a bit of a cynic, and now the curb alteration from the chippie to the Junction Hotel is nearly done, I suspect it is to do with the parked cars in the other direction from the chippie to the Travellers Hotel. Is it possible for the council to make a residents parking area on an A road and then charge for it?

Featherstone in gridlock this week while road alterations take place at the entrance to the new estate “Colliers Court”. Remember a post a few weeks back regards shouldn’t this have been built before building works? That must have gone under the carpet then............. Roll Eyes

Talking of under the carpet, the Cllrs who read this forum appear to have ignored the brain wave idea to make the 150 meters of “anti-drowning hazard” half moon soak aways into the most popular free fishing area with security, built free of charge as a gift for Featherstone. Please put a red rosette on the idea before it is lost.......... Roll Eyes
