Triangle field success
I am delighted that the proposed extension to the Triangle field and Rugby Club facilities has been approved by the Downlands planning committee. The plan was recommended for refusal by West Berks council planners – their reason – it would be harmful to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. (ANOB).
The fact that the whole of Hungerford is designated and ANOB is irrelevant, its just that anything thing applied for outside of the development gets declined on this basis and anything within the boundary is approved no matter how ugly or inappropriate ie. The houses in the back gardens of Atherton Crescent, the houses along the canal and the flats replacing meadow view. Thank god the members committee has seen through this and approved the application.
