M54 to M6 Link Road

Representation

This representation is made on behalf of Persimmon Homes Limited who have just been advised that land that they have an interest in is proposed to be acquired as a result of the proposed scheme, both permanently and for carrying out of works. Persimmon do not appear to have been served with requisite notice but have been informed by the freehold owner of the land. The land in question is land being promoted by Persimmon for residential development. There are concerns as to the extent of the land take proposed by the Acquiring Authority and the justification of the inclusion of the said land, which potentially may be excessive subject to clarification by the Acquiring Authority. While this is not an objection to the principle of the proposed scheme, constructive dialogue with the Acquiring Authority will be required before Persimmon can have the relevant comfort they would require as the land is earmarked for housing delivery, which of course has significant wider implications. Persimmon would therefore like to reserve the right to make representations in respect of the above matters if they are unable to be satisfactorily resolved with the Acquiring Authority in advance of any Examination proceedings.
