Questions and Responses

What is council's stance on a project taking six years but still remaining unfinished, especially given its prominent location near The Glen.

Planning permits typically allow developments of this size to be constructed over 2-4 years, depending on how quickly they start after approval is granted. For this site, actual construction time has been approximately 2.5 years. Works had continued until recently and a further extension has been approved for the completion of the development to 26 June 2019. The owner of the site had kept the permits current so this site is not of significant concern to us at this time.
