ORA have received a telephone call today from the developer at Tadpole Farm. On receiving the call, ORA was hoping to hear that the developer had relented and was bringing Oakhurst residents the good news that they wouldn't have to wait for 564 houses to be built before the school building started.
Sadly, this was not the case. The only reason the developer rang us up was to see if we were interested in their design codes. They are the architects, they are the ones that pushed this through onto the community but now they have the temerity to approach us.
We know that some turkeys will vote early for Christmas; as the local councillors did when they said they were against inappropriate development but then proposed and voted for it.
The only thing that ORA would support on behalf of the residents of Oakhurst is if the developer came forward and said when and where would you like the school built on the Tadpole Farm site; thus helping existing residents to find a reception place for their children.
The developer has got its wish, the support of the local councillors and the MP. We'll leave them to sort this mess out; a mess of their own making.
