Local residents, under the guidance of the Flower Colonies Area Residents' Association, have been following this application with considerable interest. We are in favour of development, but we believe that any change should have a positive impact on the community, and the planning application submitted by AMA/Oberlanders neither fulfils our needs, nor lives up to the architect's own standards of 'excellence of design' and the 'highest of architectural standards'. We have formally objected to their application on many levels, as well as start to create our own contra-plan.
Letters of objections
Local residents have submitted a huge amount of letters of objection to the council in August/September 2009 and in March and April 2010.
