This week, Story Homes has placed netting on a hedge on the boundary of the new Strawberry Grange development in Cockermouth, Allerdale.
In response to the recent comments made about Story Homes online, on the SusCo blog and posted on various social media pages, we would like to clarify the following:
Story Homes was granted planning permission for the proposed development on Friday 22 May 2015. The netting of hedges does not constitute implementation of the planning permission.
Unlike the individuals who have trespassed onto the land and caused criminal damage to the netting overnight, Story Homes obtained the express permission of the current landowners to put the nets in place.
We have passed this matter to our solicitors and we have notified the Police of the criminal damage caused and the situation will be monitored over the coming weeks. Should any member of the public have valid concerns regarding the proposed development at Cockermouth we suggest that this be directed through the appropriate channels for due consideration via firstname.lastname@example.org.
