Construction of low cost housing in this area would in our opinion be not be financially viable due to the exisiting infrastructure i.e access, utilities ( do the devlopers intend to upgrade th exisiting water main from the main road at Sandside up Storth Road)
Inevitably build costs would rise so therefore requiring the devlopers to go back to the planners requetsing the inclusion of luxury housing to cover the cost and make the development profitable. 80% luxury housing and 20% affordable housing. could the developers/SLDC/planners guarentee in writing that this would not be the case.
there is rare wildlife that require protection that frequent this area.
Low cost housing would inevitably become 2nd homes as was our experience selling so called affordable housing on Bela Forge, Milnthorpe in 1999 - purchased by professional couple form Manchester arae as 2nd home.
