CAMPAIGNERS are celebrating after preventing a housing development from being created in the grounds of a bungalow.

Objectors to the proposed development of 16 homes at Parker Avenue in Clitheroe are victorious after the bid was withdrawn.

The plan aimed to build affordable homes next to the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, following the demolition of a bungalow on the site.

The bid resulted in 15 letters of objection and 64 signatures on a petition.

Objections were also sent by Gisburn Parish Council and Clitheroe Town Council citing concerns about school provision, highways safety, and the ‘excessive size’ for a greenfield plot.

Clitheroe Town Council objected access to the 1.43 hectare site was ‘poor’, the development would ‘impinge on a wildlife reserve’ and would be ‘detrimental’ to surrounding landowners.

The application has now been withdrawn after it was recommended for refusal by planners at Ribble Valley Borough Council.

Lancashire County Council had also requested £80,000 from the developer towards provision of local school places should the bid go ahead.

Campaigners have said they are relieved the ‘ridiculous’ plan has been withdrawn Town and ward councillor Mary Robinson said: “I am just so relieved this plan has been withdrawn.

“There would have been a lot of people taking a stand if it had not. At the town council we saw the problems with the bid immediately. It is too big, it impinges on the conservation area.

“For a bungalow the site is fine, but for 16 homes it is just not on.”

The plan for land in Parker Avenue was submitted to the council by Salford-based applicant Bowsall Ltd.

In their application they described the site, where a bungalow was due to be demolished as ‘low quality scrubland’ next to ‘an enjoyable area of green space which supersedes the applicant’s site of public value’.

Bowsall Ltd were unavailable for comment.

Obviously said development was for virtual slave servant accommodation for when the existing local residents are priced out and their homes used as summer holiday homes for the mega wealthy Jet Set like the Gulf State Arabs the Mosque in Clitheroe was probably funded by for. Same principle applies to superfast fibre optic broadband in order for them and other wealthy people to trade shares on global stock markets because the BT phone line based 8 meg potential suffers from the fatal flaw in any high tech electronics. For example when the temp first got up this morning my internet was really flaky and too slow to even attempt YouTube as the difference in the coefficient of linear expansion between the phone wires and the junction boxes disturbed the connections and turned them into diodes. Its OK now as most of the diodes have probably burnt themselves out , but it will be the same tomorrow as well probably.

Taking my turning the entire Ribble Valley into a destination for the Jet Set analysis into consideration it would appear that the new houses built on the old garage site opposite the school in Chatburn are primarily intended as summer holiday homes. They are useless for a family to live in as they are like a virtual rabbit warren and even though three storey and bedrooms most of the ground floor is taken up by the built in garage which is useless for a big car as its too low although used as excuse to defuse any parking concerns at planning. In any case at the original asking price of 250k they were beyond the means of most working families probably due to the fact that they were built to the very latest full spec green standards with solar panel on the south facing rear roof and solid wall insulation built in the gap between the facing stone and the concrete block carcass. Perhaps it may be reasonable to believe said green regulation are designed to be just enough power from reduced winter solar plus insulation to prevent frost damage to the plumbing when they are empty in winter. Likewise the garage is probably intended to keep stuff like bikes etc which you can't bring from home abroad by plane and HS2 and when complete the development of two theoretically semi-detached homes are so close together and no room on the outside of full block that its probably difficult even to get a bike into the back garden ? No wonder the developers never minded too much about RVBC 30% " affordable " policy !

I seem to have freaked out all the 21C UK equivalents of the WW2 Jews who willingly bought the train tickets to the concentration camps from the SS, even though some of them may have been glad to escape the allied bombing. And if you think about it objectively and explore all the possibilities its almost certain that Ed Miliband's Dad was a Nazi Spy and that's how the Germans got the Royal Navy Code !

Its all on my nollyprott wordpress blog but perhaps not if you are not bright enough to work out that its a spoonerism for probably not and let the UK has turn into Monty Pythons Flying Circus !

Whilst I agree the amount of houses / flats on the site was totally excessive and like useyourhead says they will probably come back with a revised plan, what I can't understand is why when these homes are in Clitheroe and at the opposite end of town to Gisburn, why is Gisburn parish council objecting what's it got to do with them?
