Consultation over 120 new homes in Overton 'not good enough'

First published in News by

A PLAN for 120 new homes in Overton is high quality, councillors were told.

Representatives from Turley Associates attended Overton Parish Council’s November meeting to discuss their plans for the site in Overton Hill.

The councillors discussed points raised from a public exhibition held about the plans for the 3.7 hectares, which propose a mixture of homes for 2015.

A Turley Associates spokesman said about the scheme: “It is a high-quality design and layout which respects the local environment.”

However, councillors criticised the company for not telling enough residents about the exhibition.

The meeting was told by the Turley representative: “There are 1,800 residents in the Overton parish. I would suggest that writing to 200 that are immediately adjacent is adequate.”

Councillor Lucy Sloane Williams said 200 people was not enough. Cllr Paul Crawte added: “This community feel that you haven’t consulted them.”

Turley Associates promised to take on board the points raised at the exhibition, including access roads, cycling routes, increased traffic and parking problems.
