Council's Housing plans wrong choice for Gosforth

  • There would be significant impact from the extra infrastructure that new houses would bring. I have listened to the concerns of residents of Montagu Avenue, who will be effected by the extra cars and parking as a result of any potential houses on the Kenton Lodge site.
  • These housing plans could affect the whole area. Not to mention the added effect on the traffic on Gosforth High Street.
  • Protected wildlife would be put under threat and possibly driven out of the area. I myself have often seen deer near the Nature Reserve, and believe it important to host protected species, especially being so close to a city centre.


Conservative Spokesperson, Karen Jewers said "I will fight for a longer consultation period, and a public enquiry into this planning scheme. I believe that residents should be given a proper chance to have a say in what happens in their local communities".
