It seems the rumours were true and that some of the site that Norton College was on is to be a retail park.

Living locally we recieved a card from the company who are redeveloping the site asking locals to attend to see plans etc. Unfortunately due to work comitments I couldnt go.

Did anyone on the forum attend? and what was in the proposals?

What do others living in the vicinity think about the proposals?

I was in queuing traffic at the Meadowhead roundabout last week. Crawled up to Hunstone Avenue and then didn't move an inch for 10 mins.

I look forward to this roundabout getting even worse if/when a retail park is built next door.

Thats what they need to know about at the meetings. I'm hoping they have another one and that I can make it.
M&S, Costa, a supemarket & pub / restaurant are being spoken of.
I have emailed the developers to see if they can let me know if they do have another meeting.
Any one with concerns need to contact their councillor /MP to voice concerns re traffic etc

So no one on here went to the meeting then?

We would have had to know about it to do so.

Might have been a good idea to start the thread before the meeting had taken place so people would know about it?

It's not on their website as yet, I found their details from the card we received.

I actually thought people living locally would have all had a card from the developers, otherwise I would have put it on here.

The developer is St James Securities, Leeds

Am I to assume from their email address that the developers are intending to turn Norton into hell on earth?

No, they are just consolidating the leisure centre off the college grounds so that can be sold off.

Bring it on. The more retail outlets the better.

Private developments are one of the best chances of getting any investment in the local infrastructure, so make sure you let them know all your concerns. The council planners almost always ask for investment for such things as one of the planning considerations, and often get it.

Doubt it will be on such a grand scale, don't think it would be much bigger than down at Meersbrook, where Matalan is, but I could be wrong.

I would like it to be something which enhances the area and complements what is there already. Maybe a garden centre and and a m&s food hall...

FTFY.

If its only going to be a small retail site similar to the one on Chesterfield Road it wont have much of an impact on the traffic in the area. Norton college and leisure centre used to generate a fair amount of traffic.

Leisure centre still there still generating a lot of traffic. Doubt any fast food will be there as the school managed to stop a macdonalds being built where JCT6000 ( gilders) is.

if they can put in a sensible traffic idea fantastic ,we badly need a argos as the one n town is terrible to get to,and a supermarket and a few shops would help us on the south side of the city,but they will have to sort out the traffic.

Good ... attract some decent shops though instead of these daft "mini retail parks" that are now the norm!
