Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project: District Council "have not yet agreed anything" about developers using the public car park and meadow for 'storage space'
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project: How have PegasusLife been allowed to use the public car park and meadow for 'storage space' and what exactly does the promise of a 'bigger and better car park' once work is finished mean?
It seems, though, that the remaining parkland would be open
- although, as the Herald notes, "the developer has decided to build its 113-home retirement community in phases, rather than one go, meaning it will be able to contain its construction materials without using the public car park"
- meaning, according to the East Devon Watch, that it "won’t be much fun for those in Phase 1 (or their neighbours) to live on or near a building site until other phases (how many?) are completed":
