The MHK for Michael says he's disappointed that Heritage Homes are submitting more plans for a housing development behind Michael School.

Alfred Cannan is calling a public meeting to hear what those who live in the area think.

The developers were refused permission to build around 100 properties on the site earlier this year due to concerns about road access.

The new plans reflect the recommendations of the report which led to permission being refused, but Mr Cannan says the changes aren't big enough.

In order to secure access to the land, Heritage Homes struck a deal with the Department of Education and Children to use the school's playing field in exchange for another field nearby.

Mr Cannan wants to hear what Kirk Michael residents think at a meeting in St Michael's Hall on May 9th at 7.30pm.
