Concerns raised over development plan

The government's head of planning policy was grilled by members of the public at the Positive Action Group's meeting on Monday night.

The Area Plan for the East is in its earliest phase of development, with Head of Planning Policy Diane Brown keen to stress absolutely nothing has been decided yet.

She also told the 70 strong audience, which included MHKs and local authority members, that the current consultation is being extended by more than a month.

The new deadline for submissions is 5pm on Friday 26 May.

More than 220 sites around existing towns and villages are earmarked for potential development on the draft plan.

Marown Commissioner Alison Lynch was sceptical about promises the concerns of residents would be listened to.
