Plans to redevelop an area of land that was once Howards Yard Mill Rythe Lane into a civil engineering depot has caused uproar among many of Haylings residents. We reported here earlier in the week about registering objections and feedback and also highlighted the closing date.

Weve since learned however that the consultation period has been extended to April 23 which should give more time to make views known.

There will also be a discussion meeting about the venture at Mill Rythe School on Thursday night at 7.30pm. Titled: campaign against concrete depot this will be a chance to firm up how residents against the plans will go about halting the application.
