Hickings Lane Park Planning Application Has Been Withdrawn

21st August 2014 Broxtowe Borough Council, Stapleford Community Group, Stapleford Town Council Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , 1 Comment


Great news, the planning application to allow 14 flats to be built partly on Hickings Lane Recreation Ground has been withdrawn.

After learning that a planning application to allow 14 flats to be built 2/3s on Hickings Lane Recreation Ground were submitted Stapleford Community Group set up a petition against these plans.

Details and links to the planning application.

Those of you who attended the COUNCIL MEETING held at Stapleford Town Council will no doubt recall that Liberal Democrat Councillor Helen Grindell made it perfectly clear she was 100% for allowing the application to be passed, which would have meant 2/3s of the building to take place on the actual recreation ground.  Whilst shortly before the meeting started and just after the presentation given by an officer from Broxtowe Borough Council, Liberal Democrat Councillor David Grindell also told a member of the public that he also thought it was a good idea to allow the development to take place.


Stapleford Community Group are very happy that the application had been withdrawn and are glad that they 100% represented the views of the residents not just around the actual recreation ground but of the wider Stapleford community who were also against this application being granted.
