Radburn Field – Community Right to Bid (CRB)

The latest CRB made on behalf of residents has seen the Council accept the application made in respect of the field at Radburn Close, an area which the Labour Party’s Local Plan would have seen turned into a housing estate.

Readers will be aware that on 18 December 2019 this area was taken out of the Local Plan by the Government appointed inspector. Despite this, it was felt that a CRB application should still be made, in case the Council ever decided to sell this land to a speculative developer.

This is the latest of 10 sites which HAP have helped residents give open green areas around the town some protection from being built on on the future.
