Demolition of buildings in Old Crosby Conservation Area of Scunthorpe should go ahead, says Neighbourhood Watch official
The demolition of properties in the Old Crosby Conservation Area of Scunthorpe should go ahead as soon as possible, suggests Tony Knight, Area Co-Ordinator, Crosby East Neighbourhood Watch Group. He says...
The properties concerned have been left empty/abandoned, boarded up/derelict and have been broken into on many occasions over the last 12 years.
Without doubt, North Lincolnshire Council will get our wholehearted support from the Crosby East Neighbourhood Watch Group to the planning application to build new single homes. It can only be for the better of Old Crosby, instead of the continual problems as they stand now.
Many years ago the council gave permission to demolish an old farm house and buildings/farmland in the same conservation area to build council house elderly dwellings at Chatterton Crescent and Abbey Gardens plus a pre-school and also more recently to build more elderly dwellings at April Court at the
Old Crosby/Frodingham Road junction.
Myself, and others from Crosby East, see no reason for the proposed development to be refused. In fact it will only enhance and upgrade the area for the better for all.
Let’s move forward as soon as possible to sort this problematic, neglected eyesore for the frustrated residents who have voiced their concerns about these empty properties deteriorating, and crime/antisocial behaviour increasing at many of our Crosby East Neighbourhood Watch meetings over the last 12 years.
