First Choice Homes are proposing to build two houses on the land opposite Diggle Chippy. As this is one of the few green spaces left in the centre of the village the DCA feels it is important to retain it for community use.
The proposal is to build two, three bedroomed houses with off road parking on the land. They have support from the Housing Corporation who have accepted there is a need in the area. It has not gone as far as planning and they want to involve whoever is likely to be affected by the proposals.
Stuart Coleman, Chairman of the Diggle Community Association, says, “It is important to speak out if we want to continue to have a say in what happens in and to our village. If you agree/disagree with the DCA that this development should not take place then please attend the consultation and make your views and opinions known.”
Invitation to Diggle residents to attend the consultation:
