Gateside West Haddington started this petition to MKM Building Supplies and

MKM Building Supplies and In-Site Property Solutions recently gained planning approval for a 1250sqm Builders Merchant warehouse and yard in a residential area of Haddington, East Lothian. Local residents feel this is the wrong location for this type of business, and have serious concerns about safety given the site is surrounded by housing and close to a primary school and children’s playground. East Lothian Council planning committee narrowly approved the application by the casting vote of the chairman, due to there being 5 votes for and 5 votes against.

Residents of the surrounding housing areas met recently along with local elected Councillors to discuss the way forward.

We’re calling for two things:

1. For MKM to consider alternative sites in Haddington that are more suitable for their business;

2. For In-Site Property Solutions (owners of the site) to work with local residents to prepare a proposal for the site that is more compatible with a residential area.
