Developers plan to tear down Our Lady’s housing site railings.
They say it will improve “permeability”
Retention of the railings was considered to be important by local residents, and supporters of the Hob Moor conservation area, as it provided some guarantee that domestic use would not creep onto the moor.
The railings will also provide good quality security for the gardens of the residents of the new homes.
The railings are relatively new and have a longer life than the proposed close boarded wooden alternative.

The Council have not given a date by which residents objections must be received although they hope to determine the new planning application (using delegated powers) on 25th June.
