CALA Homes intend to commence with
site set up and construction phase of the Telephone House development on 6 May 2003

YORK ROAD - on the north side of Telephone House site, Town Centre, Tunbridge Wells, TN1

The development on York Road threatens to seriously damage the whole fabric of this tiny street.
The new Telephone House Estate will be so overbearing, as it is THREE times government guidelines in density terms.


York Road, Tunbridge Wells on Tuesday 6 May 2003 (19:00) - the day Cala Homes started with the site set up and, the beginning of the construction phase of the Telephone House Estate Tunbridge Wells


0.3 hectare = 0.7 acres is the insignificant size of the land of Telephone House [ BT's former administrative headquarters of the Tunbridge Wells telephone area ] which CALA Homes bought from Crest Nicholson after the very controversial appeal decision by the Planning Inspectorate
(Inspector Malcolm Lewis who granted the planning permission is no longer in the services of the Planning Inspectorate)
140 units / hectare = 60 units / acre - an extremely high density CALA Homes want to achieve


1 May 2003

- Is this a sustainable replacement for the 21st Century ?
A high density development which pleases no-one - neither the mp, local councillors, residents nor the developers.


April 2003 - How do CALA Homes defend what is known to their directors as "hot potato and rotten apple" ?



WHAT DO TUNBRIDGE WELLS AND THE TELEPHONE HOUSE NEIGHBOURS WANT TO SEE ?

WHAT DO CALA HOMES WANT TO BUILD ?

Is CALA Homes really going ahead with THAT scheme ?
