Peel meeting hears housing concerns

Dandara and planning officers field questions

A meeting about a housing development in Peel has heard from both sides.

Around 40 residents who oppose the building of the properties at Slieau Whallian View attended a public meeting last night (Wed)

 

They object to the number and size of the properties and the impact they could have on the town's infrastructure.

 

Representatives of Dandara and planning officers were present to answer questions about the process and objections.

 

Dandara's construction director, David Thomas, explains why the company decided to increase the number of houses on the site off Poortown Road from 24 properties to 49 smaller units.
