Opposition to homes plan

Have your say

COUNCILLORS in a former pit village are opposing plans to build 13 houses on land that was earmarked for shops.

Treeton Parish Council has objected to Jones Homes’ application for land at Wood Lane.

Its members said the land was scheduled for shopping development in the future plan for Treeton and claim that not effort has been made to attract shopping developers.

At a meeting, councillors were told that Treeton needed more retail facilities providing before any more housing development takes place in the village.
