Tired! late night last night at a Parish Council meeting. Having a bit of rant about even more planned houses in the area.
The PC are going to object, but the final decision is down to East Hants District Council. And they've not got the best track record for turning things down.
Plus the planned development for 85 houses behind our hour has been resubmitted to the council with new plans - it shows the developer is having to do further work re surface drainage/foul drainage etc, but the number of houses is still 80! and this time we've only got 14 days to object instead of a month
last time we had 240 objections
Then there's 51 planned for about 300 yards away, then the possibility of another 144 on more fields adjacent to the 51, then more plans shown at public consultation for another 76
All within an area that is on heavy clay, does not have mains foul drainage and those houses already built have septic tanks/sewerage systems that are all failing after 1-2 years because the soil doesn't allow proper drainage for this number of houses!
The EHDC plan for housing in our area suggests 175 house to be built between now and 2028......but with 107 just approved about a mile from us, I can't see them sticking to that figure
