New Town North Development Proposed for the Land Adjacent to the Park
The final consultation event planned for 2nd April 2020 in Broughton St Mary’s Parish Church has been cancelled. Instead, the developers will post their proposals on their website http://www.newtownnorth.co.uk on 2nd April.
We hope that all lovers of the park will visit the website and respond with their views. This will be the last chance to comment before a formal planning application is lodged, probably at some point in the summer.
The proposals to date indicate that six-storey blocks of flats will flank the boundary of the park to the south, the south west and the west. They will change the very special green and secluded character of the park for ever and the Friends believe that we should lose no opportunity to put the case for moderating the overwhelming scale of the development.
