Development Land Hollins Cross Farm Burnley
The Say No to Hollins Cross Farm campaigners with the Residents of Wilkie Avenue are monitoring the rain fall, they had have serious flooding problems in the past, in this area at the bottom of the Hillside.
December 26th 2015 - 175 mm of Rain fell and serious flooding blighted the area.
Developers - The council wish to build 210+ houses at Hollins Cross Farm - the hillside and soil is a natural barrier for soaking up and slowing down the water that flows "downhill" from Crown Point.
Development was abandoned 35+ years ago when the properties started to sink.
If the Council tarmac, concrete and block pave the fields below Crown Point, the water will flow faster, the natural drainage and sewers will be overwhelmed and the whole area will have more flooding
The Main Hollins Cross Farm Website describes in more detail in the way the Structure of the Hollins Cross Farm Site will be damaged by development - this flooding will effect all of the Rose Hill Area if this Crazy Council Scheme is pushed through planning.
IT WILL FLOOD BURNLEY CENTER - just like Padiham.
Buying a house on this site is the worst investment a young family could make - your house is on a hillside - millions of gallons of water will flow through your property.
