Harworth estates sign notice they have purchased agricultural land if they change it to building land this is called profiteering and everybody else should have been given the chance to buy there own plot to build on no body was informed and should have been given the chance to buy cheap land then have the use changed some double dealings we think
We are now looking for people to campaign to keep killamarsh as a village, at the meeting tonight 22/06/2011 there is plans to build at least 1600 houses some on the old Highmoor colliery and westhorpe tip site which by the way councillor Charles has said there would be no building on it. As you know the policing in Killamarsh is next to non existant so when more houses are built it will be non existant the roads are not equiped for this amount of houses. Lets hope it does’nt fall into the waterthorpe syndrome move people in from other areas and watch the violence erupt like it did in the seventies and eighties on waterthorpe. If the houses were being build for killamarsh folk why build so many, we should have the canal reinstated and bring calm and tourist prosperity to a run down village not make a ghetto within a ghetto. Please email and keep your eyes and ears open it will effect us all you cannot put any more in a full dustbin. You may think our methods are draconian but we have lived here all our lives and can see it falling to bits. If only Harworths new what was under the old pit tip.
The so called regeneration of killamarsh consists of closing the bank so people do there banking in eckington or crystal peaks closing the wade and madins garage so residents have to use petrol to get petrol. The building of houses on the old canal so when if the canal ever comes to killamarsh it will have to be re-routed. Also the closing down of the kwiksave and the parkside looking like a disused no go area.
The regeneration does not seem to be working the walls built around the shops have still not been fixed. Comments please
Why have we got to build houses on the only old thing left in killamarsh (midland station) this is the only thing they have’nt knocked down yet, that, is left of old killamarsh, why not turn it into a cafe for the walkers and cyclists that use the black train path on the way to rother valley, no more houses please . comments welcome
