Well done to councillors

AFTER the saga surrounding Sandy Lane in Hucknall, Dispatch readers will be pleased to know that residents have claimed another notable victory.

Subjected to the ugly, unused garage at 11 Windmill Grove and extensive applications for build-to-rent, I was pleased to see Ashfield District Council’s planning committee applying rigorous analysis to this application and defeating it with a large majority (SEE PAGE 12).

Well done, Coun Trevor Locke (Lab), of Hucknall, for his confirmed support and well done especially to Coun John Knight (Lab) for his robust debate.

Residents of Windmill Grove have reprieve from being overlooked. The resolve to oppose is strengthened, despite the revengeful removal of trees, the nuisance bonfires, the ugly fencing and the deliberate dumping.

Thank you. Keep vigilant. Keep opposing.


Sandy Lane, Hucknall.
