It is interesting to see that the prickly issue of rights of way is coming to the fore, presumably it is not as straightforward a matter as some people first thought, and I find it no surprise that the final solution may well be compulsory purchase.
With regards to the residents of Brooke Road, whose properties border this development, this will equate to a legalised removal (some may say theft) of large sections of their rear garden.
Fortunately, affected parties are allowed to object to the purchase which could then well lead to a public inquiry meaning further delay and increased costs.

CCTV is only helpful if it is continually monitored and a rapid response actually occurs in the event of an incident .
Looking on the positive side once the planning application has been submitted any affected parties can submit written objection to this, which may well lead to a further inquiry, more delays and increased cost.
