Images of Royal Tunbridge Wells Town Centre
If you look at pictures of Limehill Road, Dudley Road or Church Road you will realise that York Road is a completely different street.
Residents enjoy living among these green open spaces. The zero privacy in the rear (Dudley Road) is compensated with the views in the front. Green Fingers of York Road have won several times the "Tunbridge Wells in Bloom" competition.
Residents like the trees on the Telephone House site. They were once planted as a condition to a planning consent at the beginning of the 1980s.
Crest Nicholson's Chartered Town Planner, Thomas Rothermel, mocking local residents, declared at the Public Inquiry, May 2001:
The targeted group of buyers of CALA Homes' flats in York Road might be well-earning commuters, who wish to live among the less privileged (affordable housing block adjacent), who have friends that are crazy about obstructing pavements (only 42 car spaces provided for 43 flats) and who like to watch what opposite neighbours have on their dinner plates (estimated distance between houses opposite 12 metres).
