• One resident was concerned about the Greaves Hall development insofar as the details were similar to the Redrow development which was declined, a good access road was to be re-sited, it would affect the school and Greaves Hall Avenue, the opening of the lay-by had Health & Safety concerns, there would be increased traffic and the route of the new road, and red oak trees would be disturbed.
• The other two members of the public were connected to the commercial users already on site and were again concerned about access via Greaves Hall Lane, the new route would have to accommodate the numerous HGV’s, and worries on Health & Safety issues through these HGV’s and the proximity of the school.
