Beechfields and part of Rookery Rise still remain unadopted 8 years after being completed to adoptable standards. The Council can offer no reasonable explanation other than they don't have the resources to adopt it.
The play area and open space between Pinetree and Linwood still remain in the Developers hands 8 years after they should have been handed over to the Council. Again the Council can offer no reasonable explanation other than the rather ridiculous excuse that they would need a public consultation to see if a play area is wanted.
Rather stupid when you realise that the Developer only got planning permission on the understanding that they would provide a play area & open space and hand it over to the Council before some of the houses on Linwood were occupied. All the houses on Linwood were sold and occupied in 2001.
The bottom line is that there is a legal problem that the Council don't want anyone to know about so they play silly games in an attempt to stop the truth coming out.
