Petition update

Last Thursday, we submitted our petition on Central Square to JRHT. On Friday, they asked us for a meeting, which we held yesterday (Monday), including representatives from the DRA core team, DGG, ABC:D, and DPAC: 

We discussed two things:

1. Central Square. We want them to stop using Central Square as a builders compound. This is perhaps the most densely populated area of the estate. JRHT had discussed some ideas around this and had some helpful proposals. We discussed their ideas and some of our own. JRHT are going to investigate some details of the options that were discussed. We hope to see some firmer proposals in the next couple of weeks and to have some better news – particularly for residents of Barron House and Newman House.

2. An earlier paper that we’d submitted about communications. JRHT were keen to get on with all the things that we’d specifically asked for in that paper, including the resumption of development liaison meetings that had been suspended during lockdown. These are liaison meetings between the DRA core team, JRHT, and the builders – to track issues with the build. In the past, we’ve used them to get things like sagging porches sorted across the estate, and MVHR reinstalled across Stephenson Quarter (phase 1), for example. We’re also looking forward to a more regular JRHT presence on the estate, and to regular JRHT reports in LotsOn.

Some details still need to be discussed, but we’re hoping these things will start this month.

What’s the plan, Stan?*

We’ve put up a new page linking to planning consents at derwenthorpe.co.uk/planning. You can also find it under the “about” menu. You can find plans for Phase 5 there, and all parts of Derwenthorpe. And the new Burnholme plans, too: they’re not part of Derwenthorpe, but there on our doorstep.

You can see how the plans have changed over time, too. For example Lotherington Lake has changed shape. And Holly Close moved.

Find your house plans.

You can see the plans for your house, too. Find the right quarter, and find the right site plan. It will label your house with something like B1 or D2. Then you can find the plans and elevations for your house. Some two bedroom houses include plans for an extra room in the loft: which might save architects fees, if that’s something you’re considering. Do check with the council: but you might not need planning permission to use those plans.

Phase 5 plans.

JRHT are finalising contract details with a builder for phase 5, and residents’ representatives are working with JRHT to ensure that residents have a way to deal with any issues that might arise. Of course, there will be additional traffic, and other disruption, but we want to keep that to a minimum.

Contrary to recent rumours, JRHT aren’t considering any other plans.

Residents’ representatives, through DPAC, DRA, and DGG are working with JRHT to ensure that we quickly keep on top of any problems that might occur.

* Not a Paul Simon lyric, apparently!

DPAC/DGG update

Yesterday, we published notice of a DPAC/DGG meeting tomorrow. The emailed copy of the notice included calendar links that -for some people at least- didn’t seem to do anything.

We’ve updated the notice to include links to papers for the meeting. If you visit the web page, you’ll find links to the papers, and calendar files there. Open the calendar files to find the Zoom link.
