WAINHOMES ST AUSTELL DEVELOPMENT

Steve Gilbert is opposed to the Wainhomes plans for St Austell

Wainhomes are asking to build 1,500 new homes to the north of St Austell, on 126 acres of green land. Steve Gilbert is opposed to the plans. He's written to the local papers to set out the reasons why.

Dear Sir,

The Wainhomes proposal to add 1,500 new homes in St Austell and develop 126 acres of green space to the north of town around Scredda is simply not needed. Anyone who lives in St Austell will know that the town's roads already struggle to cope and, unlike the Eco-Town proposal, there'll be no extra Government money coming in to make the improvements that such a large expansion demands.

Not only would the plans put extra strain on local resources, the track record of Wainhomes in St Austell leaves a lot to be desired. The company's history across the town seems to be one of delay and broken promises. Where are the speed humps promised for Carclaze Road? What about the children's play area at Burlawn that is sub-standard and in the wrong place? What about their barely concealed efforts to displace the badger set in Carclaze Yard to open further land for development?

If Wain Homes can't finish what they start or keep their promises, I don't believe St Austell should trust them with the largest urban extension for decades.

Regards,

Stephen Gilbert

    If you are a resident of the St Austell and Newquay constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
