On 4th July 2017 the Alde and Ore Estuary Partnership displayed plans they have to use the Enabling Development Scheme to raise funds for the AOET, by selling a parcel of land in School Road, Tunstall for 12 houses.
As you may have read in the local press, the Alde and Ore Estuary Trust (AOET) are presently embarking on a project to raise £10m to fund improvements to coastal defences along both estuaries. The project includes work at many locations, including work in Tunstall. One method of fund raising is to use a facility called Enabling Development. In essence, this allows small scale development on land presently used for farming. If the development is permitted by the local planning authority (in our case SCDC) this vastly increases the value of the land and when the land is sold to a developer, this money is then passed on to the cause (i.e. the AOET)
