Public to have their say on proposals for Jesmond Avenue woodland site

A PUBLIC consultation into controversial plans for a ‘woodland’ in Jesmond Avenue is being held so residents can have their say.

ARC Architecture and Chapman Lily Planning are hosting the drop-in event on 19th October at Highcliffe Sports and Social Club from 5pm to 8pm.

In a statement, the companies say: “We are keen to hear your views which will help future proposals for the site.”

Chris Bulstrode, of Brentland Ltd, is appealing BCP Council’s refusal to allow him to build 16 four-bedroom homes on land south of Jesmond Avenue.

Over the past year Mr Bulstrode has felled trees at the site which he said were dead or dying.

The action caused uproar in the village with protesters trying to stop the work being carried out.

But in a victory for Mr Bulstrode, last month BCP Council backed him and gave permission to fell a further number of trees on the land.

Campaigners against the proposal to build on the site claim it is “ancient woodland” which is a “haven” for animals and insects.
