Site B, as Grainger plc termed it, at the bottom of Margaret Grove had been destined for redevelopment. A group of houses were planned and the tennis courts, one of the earliest sporting facilities provided on the Estate would have been moved. There had been earlier attempts in the 90s to redevelop this site and as usual the process of clearing it of allotment tenants and allowing it to fall in disuse had been in train. Behind a hedge this valuable plot was almost completely forgotten except when its potential for development was again realised by Grainger plc.
As the residents associations comprising the MRG (Moor Pool Regeneration Group) MRA Moor Pool Residents Association and MAA (Moor Pool Allotment Association put together a stiff resistance to the development plans, its location became a little more apparent. Still few people had been on it other than to survey for wildlife as part of the planning objections and so it remained rather unappreciated.
