Experts quizzed on £100m development
Date published: 18 December 2013
MORE than 100 residents eager for answers about the proposed Foxdenton development packed into Kingfisher Community Special School last night.
Hosted by Foxdenton LLP, the joint venture between Oldham-based Grasscroft Property and Seddon Construction, the consultation event marked a further chance for concerned locals to quiz experts about the development.
The £100 million outline proposals mean a new business park, 500 homes and a public open space on the 49 hectare site in Chadderton - which local residents have strongly objected to.
Members of the technical team answered questions in more depth than at previous meetings.
Mike Coulter, managing director of Grasscroft Property, said: “We’ve had a steady flow of residents coming along to ask questions and find out more.
“Obviously people have raised issues and have concerns about the development, but we’ve also had quite a few positive responses.
“We’ve been explaining the master plan for the area, how it could work as a residential and industrial site. Hopefully people are leaving with a better understanding of what we are proposing.”
