Concept 2000 Consultation

Innes Gray (above) MD of Concensus Planning on behalf of Fairview Homes organised a consultation with residents from around the Concept 2000 building, before a planning application is submitted by Fairview Homes in November 2006. They are planning to build 200 - 300 dwellings on this 4 acre plot on the Clockhouse Roundabout site, and hope to start construction July 2007, with completion by July 2009 latest.
This is the first time any such consultation has taken place with residents before an application has been submitted, and Fairview are to be commended.
The evening started with a presentaion about the site and an outline plan of the proposed development. Residents were very outspoken and presented their concerns very bluntly and directly. Their concerns were broken down into different issues: Design, Transport/Parking, Planning policy, Developer Issues and Environment - these were then discussed in detail at different tables at the venue. Residents could then go to the table / Issue that most concerned them or move to all tables in the time allocated.
The evening finished with a summary of residents' concerns, and a chance to make final points or ask questions.
There will be a follow up meeting, again I will keep you advised.
