DEVELOPERS are going "hell for leather" to use commercial sites for housing schemes, a town councillor claimed on Monday evening.
The comment came during a debate at Royston Town Council's planning committee over plans to demolish an office block.
The committee opposed a housing development on a site in Princes Mews, Royston, which would see the demolition of Heath House.
Committee chairman Cllr Bill Prime claimed: "Developers seem to be going hell for leather to do away with commercial sites."
