BULL MEADOW PARK - ALMSHOUSE DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

The Exeter Homes Trust has just put in a planning application for their plan to develop the almshouses in Fairpark Road. Exeter City Council announced that they were prepared to sell EHT a piece of Bull Meadow for easier vehicular access. A well organised campaign by the residents to oppose this sale put their views to the Council who met on the 17th January 2019 and decided unanimously that the sale should not take place. The matter then came up before the Executive Committee on the 12th February who decided that the land should be sold to EHT only if they achieved planning permission for the development. In the opinion of the Neighbourhood Association it would be quite possible and preferable to allow vehicular access from the top of the site. Any encouragement for vehicles to use the narrow roads around a pleasant family park would be a detrimental move.

A Planning Application has been received and it is available on the Exeter City Website

Click here to see it.

Reactions and comments should be sent to:- goran.molin@exeter.gov.uk or to Goran Molin, Planning Officer, ECC, Paris Street, EX1 1JJ to arrive by Thursday 28 March 2019 at the latest.

 

An e-petition has been set up on the Exeter City website, reactions to the planning application have to be in by March 28th.

Generation Linking

In conjunction with St Leonards Primary School we have held two events linking older people in the area with children from the school. There has been a theme each time and all generations have taken part in activities and refreshments at the school. Conversation has flowed and friendships made.

A third event is planned for May 24th from 1.30 to 3pm, if you know of anyone who would like to be invited please get in touch with us, 01392 274667.

We are building up a list of people who would like to be kept informed of future Generation events, see the poster here. If you or anyone you know would like their names added to the list then please email or ring us.

A Party In The Park is planned for June 9th (see above).

The St Leonards Pre-school Playgroup.

At present the playgroup is in premises owned by The Deaf Academy (ERADE), but very soon, the timing is still uncertain, ERADE will be moving to Exmouth and their site on Topsham Road will be redeveloped into housing and a Residential Home. The developers have allocated a space in the new development for the playgroup, but in the mean time, a period of two or maybe three years, they will have nowhere to go. From July 2019 they will have no premises and they are worried that if they close for that length of time they will never re-open.A great deal of ideas have been put forward, but none have been confirmed to date.

ERADE Playing Field - Mount Radford Lawn A while ago we were assured that the future of the field would not be decided until ERADE had moved, the field is not part of the planned development, but that is not to say that it will not be a separate development project. Maynard School have been asked to stop using it as a facility because ERADE are not maintaining it any longer. According to Sara Papworth of ERADE “As to our longer term plans for the MRL, these remain confidential to the Charity at present and I am afraid I am unable to provide any further information at this time.”I reiterated that the Community would like to be considered as a possible purchaser when its future came up for discussion.
