Swanland Local Plan

Who are Gladman Developments ?
One of many property developers seeking to make huge
profits from exploiting green field sites all over the country.

For all their talk of wonderful amenities and contributions to the community - make no mistake - they are in business for one purpose only - to make substantial profits. At least one of the event team in the village hall had the honesty to admit as much. Once they have done that they will move on and never be seen again (unless they think they can make another land grab). They have little or no local knowledge. Another such developer is St Modwen who have spent over 3 years down in Ferriby and Welton fighting the local council and having been repeatedly refused permission (going up to the Secretary of State) are NOW appealing to the Supreme Court, costing East Riding council thousands of pounds in legal fees. Have look at the saga shown on Ferriby website page www.nferriby.info/meltonfields.htm
