I visited the residents of Warbank Crescent yesterday afternoon who are having some of their communal area taken to turn into a bin area and parking spaces for 3 cars. This will be used for the new flats that have been built behind them (I have to say they look like containers on a ship yard).
This piece of land is where the flats that are not on the lower floor hang their laundry (as apparently stated in their tenancy contract) and where the children play.
The residents are saying that they have never received any communication saying that this piece of land was being built on, the first they knew was when somebody turned up to put fencing up earlier in the week.
I’ve asked them all to email me their objections as well as objections from neighbours in Valentyne Close. Once I have all of the details I will write to the planning department and take this up on their behalf.
