Whilst I was sitting in on a Stage 3 Complaint hearing, the Sustainable Development Committee were discussing the planning application for the above. The vote was very tight indeed. 7 voted for and 6 voted against.
It was never going to be the perfect planning application with the footprint being relatively small but I have always been of the view that this is truly a winner because of location, location, location!
We have a really opportunity now – subject to the funding coming through – to increase the profile of skills training in the West Area of the Borough more than ever before. This is surely good news for young people and for the local economy!
I wonder whether certain sections of the media will continue their negative stories. For me, this is the right thing to do!
