Bloor Homes, “one of the largest privately owned house building groups in the UK” and owned by John Bloor, has gone on a PR offensive to win villagers over to the idea of them developing the field opposite the Appleton Thorn Village Hall.
They state that,
“Importantly for Appleton Thorn, the development would allow for the opening up of a currently inaccessible and underused area of greenspace in the village. The site is an area of open space within Appleton Thorn, but one which people cannot currently enjoy.”
Most villagers will have an opinion on this – some seeing the potential for the development of a children’s playground whilst others will see a field with crops growing in it, ‘inaccessible and underused’ as it may be, as a prized village amenity in its own right.
More news as it develops, but in the first instance villagers will be keen to know that Bloor Homes is holding a Public Consultation Event at Appleton Parish Hall, between 2:00pm and 7:00pm on Monday 16th June – that’s this Monday at the time of writing.
Please note that this is the Appleton PARISH Hall and not the Appleton Thorn Village Hall, opposite the proceed development site. The Parish Hall is down on Dudlows Green Road (WA4 5EQ for those using SatNav!) next to the Co-op Store.
