South Lynn brick kiln – all options should have been considered, Lynn News letters

By Lynn News Reporter

And also to read that it was allowed to fall into disrepair and then requested for de-listing to enable the land to be developed by the council.

This isn’t a new tactic. I was secretary to LARA (Lynnsport Area Residents’ Association) who were opposed to building on Lynnsport Park and Marsh Lane. The orchard at Marsh Lane was cut down and burnt before they submitted plans to build on it during which time it became fly-tipped on and overgrown.

The outline areas of Lynnsport were also allowed to become run down, not maintained and fly-tipped on.All very good then for the developers to be able to provide photographs to support the plans.

Some things can never be replaced and are valuable assets to the town. The planning department have said the kiln is not unsafe and yet Cllr Long states it’s a dangerous structure. I would have thought the planning department would be the people who would know best and not the leader of the council.

What I would like to ask is, why the rush and have all options been considered and if not shouldn’t the demolition be postponed until that has happened?
