Weird News The real estate project to replace the stalled Senlis summer swimming pool
Woman's renovated cottage 'unsellable' because of the decor
An artist who spent three decades decorating her rundown country cottage says it is now “unsellable” after turning it into a “life size dolls house”. Mary Rose Young, 61, bought her countryside cottage in Lydney, Gloucester in 1987 for just £30,000. The property - consisting of two separate cottages - was occupied by squatters before she decided to take on the project of renovating the dilapidated home. Young spent the last 30 years painting her home - which she lives in with her musician husband Phil Butcher - in vibrant colours, loud patterns and playful trinkets.
Back to square one. Before a real estate program can see the light of day on the site of the former summer swimming pool in Senlis, we will have to redouble our patience.
The administrative court of Amiens has just annulled the deliberation of the municipal council authorizing the sale of the land to the developer Bouygues Immobilier, “considering the lack of information from municipal councilors about the offers of other candidates”.
A new victory for the association for the defense of the district of the summer swimming pool (ADQPE), at the origin of the procedure, mobilized since the start against the real estate project of 42 housing and double the parking spaces.

Should the summer swimming pool be closed?
"We remain convinced that building 9m high buildings, opposite the castle of Valgenceuse, right next to the Nonette and the green way, is not a good idea", summarizes Franklin Lepage, president of the ADQPE.
An opinion visibly shared by the more than 800 signatories of the petition opposing the real estate project, most of whom also regret the closure of the summer swimming pool in 2015, considered too expensive by the municipal majority.
During the recent municipal election campaign, the candidate and elected opposition member Véronique Pruvost-Bitar had included in her project “the rehabilitation and reopening of the summer swimming pool”.
The project presented by Bouygues Immobilier should have been part of this dynamic except that the opposition of residents was immediately manifested, especially during the public presentation meeting in June 2018. "We are refused permission to build a garden shed of more than 2 m and we would authorize one-story buildings in front of the castle of Valgenceuse? Then enraged a local resident.

It is apparently not so simple since in the months which followed, the file will hardly advance, until the end of the year 2019, when the real estate development company preferred to request the withdrawal of the building permit. "Solely for reasons of investigative delays, in order to resubmit a new file as soon as the meeting with the architect of the Buildings of France (ABF) has taken place", then specified the mayor's office.
The opponents to the project rather saw the difficulties of the promoter in responding to the constraints of the ABF but this should not call into question the initial project. No more than the cancellation of the deliberation allowing the sale of the site, except that this decision will require everything to be restarted from the beginning, including the call for tenders procedure where other project proposals for the site could emerge. .
Because if the same housing construction project is chosen again by the municipality, it will come up against the same determination of the association of residents. "We will use all avenues of appeal to block this construction", already warns the president of ADQPE.
