Development on West Leys Road

A public consultation event was held at Swanland Village Hall on Wednesday 5th September 2018.

The originalOutline Planning application was approved for 79 residences by ERYC in May 2017 SEE Map (pdf) The application and plans can be viewed on Case Reference 17/00343/STOUT

It now transpires the the developers plan to apply to increase this to 97 residences with houses on the south and east sides of the playing field. This has not yet been submitted to ERYC.

Many people will find this unacceptable and if so, when the re- application is made to ERYC you can register your comments on the ERYC website. This website will announce when the application is made and how to do it.

What are the bubbles on the pond?

After a long hot and dry period Swanland pond water levels are very low. An emergency aeration system has been put in place by the pond group to try to provide increased oxygen levels for the fish. – see video clip. Heavy rainfall at the end of July has put some water back but it is going to be a long time before our pond is back to its normal level.

A stranger was seen on CCTV in Hall Park on a Saturday night around midnight in the drive of a house, trying car doors. He was riding a push-bike and was wearing a hoodie but could not be identified.
