Planning company consults over 220 homes in Willington

A PLANNING company is consulting the public over plans for up to 220 houses in the Willington area.

Newcastle-based Signet Planning are considering two schemes in the town.

The first is for up 150 homes off Hunwick Lane in Sunnybrow.

According to drawings published online, it is being proposed to build the new estate on fields behind Cherry Tree Drive and Greenways bordering the former community centre and children’s play area on South View.

A new access road would be linked to Hunwick Lane opposite the Barton Townley garage.

The new estate would also have its own play area and landscaped footpaths with its borders lined with trees.

Signet Planning are also proposing to build up to 70 homes on a field off West Road on the western approach to Willington from Crook.

The planning drawing shows the homes being built on the edge of Willington in a landscaped estate.

Signet Planning said both plans are only at initial consultation stages with more detailed proposals to be brought forward at a later date, subject to approval.

Greater Willington Town Council will be discussing the proposals at 6.30pm tomorrow (July 2) at their office on High Street in Willington.

Members of the public are invited to attend and take part in the discussion.

It could be the best investment that Willington has ever had.
New houses including affordable houses, new facilities in Community centre and parkland and real boost to the local schools and economy.
A fantastic opportunity.

So, you think know the people and the place very well. Clearly you are one of these minority individuals that you are so fond of ranting about. Takes one to know one as the saying goes.

Jeff Robinson says...

The proposal to build 150 unwanted and unneeded houses in the central green area of Sunnybrow would represent a desecration of the village.

The strength of feeling against the proposals was illustrated by the meeting of Greater Willington Town Council having its highest ever attendance of 92 when this matter was discussed on 2nd June.

The developers were invited but did not attend.

I urge all residents of Sunnybrow and Willington who have not already done so to reply to the developers: and object to the proposals in the strongest possible terms:

Address: Signet Planning, 26 Apex Business Village, Annitsford, Newcastle upon Tyne. NE23 7BF

Telephone: 0191 250 4771

email: info@signetnewcastle
.com

Illustrate to the developers how misguided their plans are before they commit to making an actual planning application.

I would first of all like to comment on the words of settheworldonfire, what an odious man you must be making such comments on a public web site. The community of Willington does have problems, just like any other community, probably like the community you live in as well. There is good and bad in all communities and people making comments like yours only increase problems not decrease them. Im astounded when you claim to be an ex Police Officer, did you ever work in Willington or in fact the sub-divisional area of Crook or the divisional area of Bishop Auckland, yes I am a retired policeman and proud to have worked in the area. Your comments about robbers makes me think you actually don't have a clue what you talking about, as it would be extremely difficult to say when the last robbery was in Willington, I think you mean theft and burglary, you obviously don't recall the difference in definitions from training school days. One thing I will say about you settheworldonfire you may be a regular poster on here but you also wrong most of the time!!!!
