Royal Mail undertook community consultation in January 2022, with two online events advertised via an information leaflet delivered to an area of over 2,500 properties.
84 people attended these consultation events and raised various questions of the development team. Several changes were made as a result of this consultation and responses to the initial planning application, to ensure minimal impact on this residential area.
