Liz Miles started this petition to Mansfield District Council

An application has been submitted to Mansfield District Council to change the use of 229 Abbott Road from a residential dwelling to a children's home.   

In our opinion this is a totally unsuitable location for this type of home, the children can be between the age of 12 to 18 and quoting from the company website, have experienced significant placement and family relationship breakdown, these young people often suffer from attachment disorders and struggle to regulate their own emotions, leading to attempts to self medicate, resulting in substance misuse issues!

We feel these problems may lead to antisocial behaviour together with increased noise and disturbance.

This would not be right for the community or the residents nor would it be right for the children living in the home, because the local amenities just aren't there to support them. The demographics of the local area are primarily older people, there are no amenities for children or young people within easy reach, there are no shops close by and it is not served by a regular bus service. There is limited parking at the property for staff and the home car, any visitors would have to reverse onto the busy main road and if there was more than one visitor they would have to park on the main road potentially blocking the pavement. 

We strongly disagree with proposal and believe the property should be retained as a residential property and the application for change of use refused.
