Sports England have objected to the proposed demolition of the sport hall and queried the viability of the sports hall. According to the Walden Local “Critics of the plans call for the site to be considered as a whole, including the playing fields, and deplore its fragmentation, reducing the possibilities of future use and the inappropriate nature of the development in a Conservation Area. The major criticism is that additional housing on this scale would place an unsupportable burden on local services and traffic.”
Further comments can be made to the Planning Inspectorate by 22 July 2022. Details in the above link.
