The 150-home development sparked years of debate after it was given outline planning consent in 1999. Neighbours were worried about flooding and drainage issues, and the application for full planning permission went to ministerial level. It was handed back to the borough council's development control committee, which gave it the go-ahead in 2007 because reversing the decision would have cost thousands of pounds in compensation.
