- Possible compulsory property purchases in Drove road area.
- Further building behind Hexham Road?
- Larger junction proposed at Fernhill.
The S.T.O.P. campaign is holding a meeting on Tuesday 19th June 6-7 p.m. at:
THROCKLEY COMMUNITY HALL (behind Victoria Terrace)
A recent Council report assessing the viability of the School playing field (site 4945) and the fields to the west of the brickworks (site 4944) regarding access reads as follows:-
“The preferred access to site 4944 is the south via a new junction with Hexham road and through site of Fernhill House (recently acquired by Greenwich Hospital trust and part of site of Throckley primary School (subject to negotiation with Newcastle City Council). As a minimum a 10 to 15 metre strip along the western boundary of site 4945 could unlock development of site 4944 but preferably more to allow development to front onto access.
As a fallback position, it may be possible to either upgrade Drove Road to the west or create a new access further to the west, through land also in the ownership of Greenwich hospital Trust and in respect of which it has longer term aspirations for housing development. Both options are likely to require acquisition of existing properties and would be more remote from the centre of the village”
The implications of this MUST be put to Planning officers and local Councillors during the 2nd consultation stage which starts on the 20th and includes public meetings and drop in sessions.
