Local people are concerned about the plans to convert Coombe House on Oreston Quay into separate dwellings, leading to more parking problems and a building that will be out of character with the area.
Planners are recommending refusal, but Tory Councillor Michael Leaves has referred it to the full Planning Committee. This is the only way permission could be granted!
Labour candidate Vince Barry said “Like others in Oreston, I am opposed to this. There will be design and parking problems and it will definitely be over-development. If I were our Councillor, I would be standing up for local people, rather than trying to push through such an unpopular proposal. Again, Tory Michael Leaves is letting down the people who elected him.”
