Groomsport - Councillor Peter J. Martin

Martin opposes development in Groomsport

Sunday 22nd January 2012

There will be a Planning Application heard at Council on Tuesday night which I feel will seriously damage the ‘villagescape’ of Groomsport. It proposes the demolition of two houses and the redevelopment of eight two bedroom apartments. Groomsport is one of the most beautiful areas of North Down and I feel a distinct attachment to it from my childhood.

Groomsport is one of the most beautiful areas of North Down and I feel a distinct attachment to it from my childhood. We must do everything to protect the natural resources that we have in North Down and I feel that this amended proposal runs contrary to ‘PPS 6 (Addendum): Areas of Townscape Character’. There have been 169 letters objecting to the development and I hope that we can secure an office meeting to let my constituents share their views in an open forum.
