Developers accused of breaching planning restrictions to access new homes site


ANGRY residents have hit out at developers for breaching planning restrictions regarding access to a new housing development at Stretton, Warrington.

People living near the development of new homes off Stretton Road, claim vehicles accessing the site have been blocking a narrow street and causing disruption in the area – although developers Barratt Homes, say this will only be “short term.”

Residents took to social media to vent their anger.

One resident Kate Jones accused Barratt homes of “blatantly disregarding” the terms of their planning permission by using a narrow residential road to access the site.

She said an access gate for the site was locked with a pile of gravel by it while a lorry accessing the site had become stuck in the road causing disruption.

A spokesperson for Barratt Homes, Manchester, said, “We are not aware of a vehicle getting stuck at our Stretton development.

“Vehicles accessing the development have been using the designated access, however there has been some temporary disruption due to the roads on site being tarmacked.

“These are essential works which will enable vehicles to access every part of the northern area of the site, further reducing the use of surrounding roads. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to reassure local residents that the disruption is short term.”

The development is part of a two phase project, Saviours Place, involving three,four and five bedroomed properties priced between £259,995 to £302,995 and Kings Quarter involving three and four bedroom homes priced from £335,950 to £385,995.
