Copeland Borough Council in late 2012 recommended to the Government inspector that Flosh Meadows was a suitable site for a family home development. They further recommended that the site could accept a total of 36 family homes that could be built in the immediate future i.e. 0 – 5 years.
The inspector held a public meeting at the Copeland Centre in April 2013 and in his October report agreed that Flosh Meadows should be considered for a family home development for 36 homes and could be started immediately if formal approval was given by Copeland planning committee.
Richard & Betty in March 2014 have informed in person & writing Cleator Moor Town Council, St Mary’s & St Leanord’s Church and all their immediate neighbours and many more in the Cleator area that they intend to apply for planning permission to allow the site to be offered to custom build purchasers.
