“BACK GARDEN” WAR MOVES TO WOLVES
The war against “back garden” developments is taking place in leafy suburbs across the West Midlands – with Fallings Park in Wolverhampton the latest battleground.
Developer Rushton Homes want to build nine apartments to replace the trees and lawns of two houses in Primrose Lane.
Although their planning rejection has been rejected by Wolverhampton Council, the developer is now appealing to the National Planning Inspectorate in Bristol.
Local councillor Steve Evans commented: “It's quite clear that the vast majority of local residents are against the proposed development as it would have a serious impact in an area that already suffers with excessive parking due to the nearby Primrose Lane Health Clinic."
