Fences and hedge in King's Drive, Wrose, removed by landowner

A ROW has broken out between a developer and residents after he took down fences and a hedge that were encroaching on land where he wants to build homes.

Landowner Simon Holdsworth sent representatives to take down three fences and a hedge to the rear of properties in King’s Drive, Wrose, where he wants to build 23 homes.

Councillor Vanda Greenwood (Lab, Windhill & Wrose) said residents now feared for their safety after their fences were removed.

She said: “I was absolutely astounded when residents rang me to tell me what the developer had done, and without any warning.


There are massive problems in Wrose at the moment with gangs of youths causing anti-social behaviour, breaking in to people’s houses and damaging property. The residents are scared to death.

“We know it’s his land, that’s not the issue. It’s a moral issue, you just don’t take down the fences of elderly people, putting them in a vulnerable position.”

Margaret Howlett, 71, who has lived in King’s Drive for two years, said a wooden picket fence had been removed from the back garden of her bungalow in King’s Drive by two men, on behalf of Mr Holdsworth.

She said her back garden was now exposed to anti-social behaviour from people congregating at Claremont Park.
