Goodbye farmland – we shall miss you.
Illustrative Site Layout (2009/0764)
Well the forces of propaganda are out in force again.
Witness something called an illustrative site layout included in the package of documents delivered to support access application (2009/0764).
At first glance this is nothing less than a revolutionary compared to the previous site maps we have been shown, in particular:
- A central fountain / pond has appeared
- An eastern lake (with boating?) has appeared
- Wooded outdoors area have appeared in the eastern part of the site.
- Tree lined boulevards feature in abundance.
However before you all get too excited read the small print on the diagram that states that:
For illustration purposes. Not forming part of application.
In other words a load of old toot that is produced by a developer to make the proposed development look good and to let the decision makers at the planning committee feel a warm glow.
Ignore – the real development won’t look like this.
