FURTHER to the letter about the over-developed situation in School Lane and whether it could occur in Marsh Lane if the Marie Curie plans are passed.
There is no comparison. The five developments in School Lane were all luxury apartments, as was also intended for the abandoned site, an eyesore complete with tall crane. All this was obviously caused by greed - of the sellers of the old existing houses, the developers and the council.
This is hardly the case with Marie Curie. We didn’t want, or need, yet more luxury apartments, whereas there is a need for a hospice. Indeed we are fortunate to have such a dedicated and caring place for terminally ill people in Solihull.
Yes, the green belt is an issue, but in this case it should be overridden with a proviso - no more houses/flats allowed.
We do not want to lose Marie Curie, any more than we want the downgrading of Solihull Hospital.
