Call for halt to work on Churwell homes site

BROKEN PROMISES Residents are still having major problems with the site at Daisy Hill.

BROKEN PROMISES Residents are still having major problems with the site at Daisy Hill.

Work on a Churwell housing development could come to a halt after a request for a Stop Notice for the site was made.

Coun Robert Finnigan has formally requested that a Stop Notice be served on the developer, Persimmon, on its controversial Daisy Hill development site.

The legal notice, if served, would prevent any work being undertaken on the site until matters are resolved.

Coun Finnigan said: “I am continuing to be inundated with complaints from residents about the anti-social behaviour coming from the site.

“The developers have conditions imposed upon them which prevents them being poor neighbours.

“This includes not operating before certain times in the morning and not blocking streets with delivery lorries.

“Persimmon has failed to comply with these conditions even though they promised to do so.”

Resident Paul Ackroyd echoed Coun Finnigan’s anger.

He said: “The build continues to be a huge nuisance, annoyance and inconvenience to the residents.

“Footpath edges are now collapsing with them being constantly driven over by the articulated vehicles.”

“One of the most disturbing developments has been the threatening and intimidating behaviour to numerous residents by both contractors on site and delivery drivers.

“This kind of behaviour is a disgrace and yet again shows Persimmon’s lack of empathy towards residents affected by this build.”

Coun Finnigan said: “The council must use its power to put a stop to this severe anti-social behaviour.”

Nobody at Permisson was available for comment.
