Trouble at t'mill.
News from Paxton is that the local plan(still in draft form) is once more under threat just when we thought it was all sorted. Apparently the Berwickshire Housing Association are looking for zoning within Paxton for 6 low cost houses for rent. The problem is that if the zoning is approved where sources believe is the intended site then the landowner can argue that the remaining part of a very large field is no longer suitable for agricultural purposes and put it on themarket for development-it could comfortably take 100 houses if the density of the Orchard or the Kane's Close is replicated. Do you think developers would like a nice big site convenient to Ould reekie and to Newcastle. What do you think?
Oh dear we thought that battle over inappropriate development was behind us-but apparently not. Anyhow all will be clearer at a meeting on 1 September between the planners and community councils. I foresee some aggro ahead. Out with the bovver boots.
Tomorrow the challenge of the A9 I hope the caravans will be coming against us. It is bank holiday weekend in England but not our side of the border so we will be going against the stream.
Neext Rant from Huton. If I am spared
