Residents in Marina Place will have cars driving past the front and back of their homes if MES Investments are given permission to build a one-bedroom house in the back garden of Avoca Villa in Great Union Road.
Their protest against the plans has been taken up by Deputy Jackie Hilton who says the track should not be opened up to traffic.
She said: ‘The narrow grass track has not changed in decades.
The impact will be substantial and detrimental to the six families that live in Marina Place.
‘This, coupled with an application already approved at the rear of Marina Place for a three-bedroom dwelling, means the six families will be marooned by traffic.
It is totally unacceptable and I will be representing the residents at any planning meeting that takes place.’
