The owners of the Rose and Crown have submitted a new application to convert the Rose and Crown pub into five one bed flats and a studio apartment. Local Councilor Peter Hudson had this to say about the application.

The new application raises many of the same concerns with me that the previous one did, namely the over development of the site and the small unit sizes of the accommodation, the likely knock-on effect of traffic issues around Springfield Road and of course the potential loss of a community facility without any reference from the current owners to local community organisations.

Community members are encouraged to view the details of the planning application and respond with comments or concerns. The deadline for comments is Thursday the 21st August 2014. The application number is CH/2014/1223/FA and you can view it by searching at . All comments can be sent to  Feel free to copy Peter Hudson on into any comments so that he can build an overall response.

The Waterside Community Association are working with the owners of the old gravel pits along the Latimer Road to gather community feedback on what people would like to see at the site in the future. This follows the last public meeting of the WCA in January at which a representative of the owners gave a presentation.

Please take a moment and use our Feedback Form to leave your views on how you would like to see the area used.  Or you can email using the subject heading ‘Bois Quarry Community Feedback’.  Some ideas so far are a fishing club, a rowing club and even a beach!  WCA will pass on any feedback to the owners.

For those that were unable to attend the last public meeting the PowerPoint presentation can be downloaded from here
