The developers are back with a NEW massive development at the big empty site next to the Stones Corner roundabout. The proposal is similar to the last one that they withdrew back in July with just a few changes.
Wee Hur Holdings is still proposing four towers, right beside the Stones Corner Roundabout, which is already a nightmare to navigate – particularly as a pedestrian or cyclist.
Last time Wee Hur was refusing to pay for the roundabout upgrade, despite the huge profits they will make. But there’s another glimmer of good news in what is overall a pretty bad development proposal: the developers seem to be more open to contributing to the roundabout upgrade this time round. Although, they are still being quite vague about this so it’s crucial that we ramp up the pressure on the Council to make this a condition of their development approval.
Help us tell Council not to approve Wee Hur’s development as it currently stands and instead push the developer to:
- Pay to fix the roundabout
- Invest properly in active transport amenities
- Include public housing and community facilities
- Reduce building heights to be in line with the neighbourhood plan
