Persimmon's Vermuyden Gate Estate continues

This is what they want to do to it (2010)

Builders have been trying to build on this area since at least the 70s. The last big push was in the late 2000s into 2012. There was a local ballot which overwelmingly voted against any development in this field. It would appear in 2021 it is rearing it's head again this time with trenches checking for archaeological remains. But it is obviously a prelude before submitting more plans. Watch this space as we record the events as they evolve.
