    What could have been a wonderful development of permanently affordable homes has been turned into another estate of affordable homes that after one round of sales will be permanently unafforable. Strange how vision can be thwarted by short sighted planners and politicians. Still those in the rented accommodation should gain something. I remember those meetings full of community vision and hope. Let this be a lesson to all.

    To the last comment – it was sad indeed the whole site wasn’t affordable as many of us had hoped years ago – but that wasn’t due to current developers – and there is still the Community Land Trust – see more on their website – I’ve added link above.

    @David Joyce, Thanks for your comment – as Philip said, the CLT will be managing many aspects of the site in the future, and I’m sure they’d be happy to speak with you about the issues you’ve raised. http://www.cashesgreenclt.org.uk
