Great Heaving District Council has announced that the controversial Phase II development of Threadsville - the model village for model people - will go ahead after receiving full planning consent. Chair of the Planning Committee, Mrs Amanda J Threadbone announced the Committee's decision amidst a chorus of cheers and the occasional voice of dissent (later removed from the Chamber and banned from all council property sine die).
Threadbone Homes (Construction) Inc in association with The Great Heaving Development Corporation and Threadbone Property Developers plc had planned the extension to the original Phase I project following its unprecedented success. However Phase II has met considerable local opposition on the grounds that the asking price for homes in Threadsville precluded their purchase by "ordinary local folk".
Responding to criticism, Chair of Threadbone Homes, Mrs Amanda J Threadbone said that the company alongside its development partners had "listened carefully to local objections before rejecting them out of hand". As Chair of the Planning Committee, she confirmed that she had "declared an interest" and had not taken part in the debate except for announcing a willingness to make a "charity payment" and to ensure that Phase II is "affordable". She reiterated that the Company's byword was and remained "Affordable housing for those who can afford it", adding only a smirk and a nonchalant "Touche".
Phase II of the Threadville project calls for twelve homes - 6 of the Thrupiece and 6 of the (slightly) smaller Threadbone types. Properties start at £1.5 million excluding land, rooves, walls, floors and all internal fittings.
