The Councillor made her comments after she and her colleague Cllr Charlie Casey met with local residents to discuss the planning application and the issues involved. “I attended a meeting with Charlie Casey and residents of Ashgrove Avenue who have voiced concerns about this planning application. “Whilst the residents are not opposed to the new housing development, they have raised concerns around the siting of the main entrance, which had originally been earmarked for further along the road. She added, “These are genuine concerns and we would expect the Planninng Service to treat them as such. We will be contacting Planning Officials highlight the resident’s concerns.”
