WARWICKSHIRE CRICKET CLUB FAIL TO ACT.
Warwickshire Cricket Club have now put a call out for supporters and members of the club to contact members of the Council’s Planning Committee to indicate their support.
They are either refusing to listen or missing the point :- Justice Not Crisis and many if not all of the local residents who objected to their redevelopment proposals support the Cricket Club and their desire to see test match cricket played at Edgbaston.
What we do not support is the erecting of permanent floodlights, even Lords don’t have them, and the highly intensified development which comes with the ground improvements. 254 houses and two hotels with the shops and cafe bars which are part of the scheme are just not necessary.
We would ask our readers who are objectors to the scheme as it stands to follow the correct procedure and notify us by email of your objection, we will pass all objections on to the Planning department as it is not permitted to make contact with an individual Councillor who serves on the planning committee personally over a planning matter – This is a quasi-judicial process and Warwickshire CCC are not following the correct protocol.
WCCC we still are willing to speak to you and act as a mediator to the other groups and residents to ensure you get a redevelopment which we support and that concerns of local residents are addressed.
