A BARRAGE of objections have been lodged after plans to create a housing development on a community area in Oswestry were revealed.
The outline proposal to demolish an existing property at 104 Llwyn Road and replace it and the adjacent field with an estimated 12 three-bedroom home site was submitted to Shropshire Council in the week before Christmas.
It was put forward by Bryan Parry from Trefonen with the permission of the landowner.
He stated the number and size of the dwellings is only an approximation and would be for the developer to confirm when seeking full planning permission.
Thirteen local residents have already reacted angrily to the development, which will be close to the Llwyn Coppice, known locally as ‘The Coppy’.
Cerise Roberts said she “whole-heartedly” agreed with the comments made by her neighbours, saying: “Proposed plans to redevelop land at 104 Llwyn Road causes concern with possible subsidence and disturbance to my property and garden due to its elevated position which runs alongside number 104’s garden, it will also have a detrimental and damaging effect on the visual character of this area.
“In the winter when there is frost or snow on the ground it is difficult to control vehicles turning, this development will cause increased problems for residents on both sides of the road,” she added.
While Michael Frost remarked: “I am concerned that the development of this plot will have a serious impact on my family’s privacy, our ability to sell our property which is currently on the market and the conservation of the woodland surrounding the plot.
“I have enjoyed the privacy that the vacant land behind my property has given since I moved in.
“I am deeply concerned about the disturbance it will cause to me and my family both in noise and building waste/dust,” he added.
A decision is expected from Shropshire Council by March 19.
