Windmill Trading Estate Inquiry

Today I attended the first day of the Windmill Trading Estate Planning Inquiry. This is the first day of the inquiry that is scheduled to last four days though judging by the first day it could go on longer, it was tedious to say the least. The best part of the day was the residents raising their objections about this application which is completely out of sync with the surrounding area. While I'm not against any kind of development on the site, what is proposed is not the best use of the site, it overlooks an envrionementally sensitive area Mitcham Common with blocks of flats five story high and it is cramming far too many flats into one small area. This has been a long running saga in my ward for the past three years and hopefully when the Planning Inspectorate delivers his report next year he will uphold the decision of the Council in turning down this application.
