Housing plans for Fountain Lane, in Davenham

Northwich Guardian: Housing plans for Fountain Lane Housing plans for Fountain Lane

MORE new homes are in the pipeline for Davenham.

Richborough Estates held a public exhibition about its plans for 70 homes off Fountain Lane.

Proposals were expected to be officially submitted to Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) at the end of April.

Clr Suzanne Wilson, speaking at the latest meeting of Davenham Parish Council, said: “I’ve no comment really – they want to build houses that we don’t want and the wrong type of houses.”

Clr Brian Robinson, who went to the exhibition, said: “It’s pot luck who you get talking to.

“The fellow I was talking to said he was the traffic man, he had made a study of the traffic going down, how wide it was and how the junction could be improved.

“He said there was no problem so I gave up then and went home.”

Councillors said they thought it would be a difficult junction to widen without encroaching on people’s property and emphasized that it was a busy area.

Clr Andy Duff, acting chairman for the meeting, said: “That’s a nasty corner.”

Councillors were also concerned that the estate would pave the way for a merger of developments between Davenham and neighbouring village Moulton.

Clr Katie Mattinson said: “My biggest worry is that, while they’ve reduced the size of the site from that suggested in the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), there are three access roads off the site pointing to other developments in Moulton.”

Clr Wilson said: “They couldn’t say a timescale of when they would submit plans but they’re aiming to build in five years rather than 10.”

"Richborough estates is a fast growing buisness founded in2003 with the aim of helping landowners maximise their land assets on a "no win no fee" basis"
"Once contracted to promote a site,we project manage a team of highly qualified and experienced industry professionals with the aim of winning the best possible planning permission..."
In joint venture partnerships such as the Fountain Lane project which represents "an association of two or more individuals or companies engaged in a solitary buisness enterprise for profit without actual partnership or incorporation", their role is to A. act as a smokescreen for the landowners and B.to act as a smokescreen for the landowners.
Incidentally does anyone know who owns the land ?
