Commenting on the news Independent Ward Cllr Linda Brown
said that she would be vigorously opposing the appeal
and that Bloor homes have a fight on their hands with
the local community. A 220 home development coming
forward 10years early threatens to undermine the local
plan and would be very bad not only for Cheswick green
but also the wider area.
