WITH reference to Lynn Robinson's letter of support for the development of Wood's Lake (August 28) it appears that she does not know the area very well.
WITH reference to Lynn Robinson's letter of support for the development of Wood's Lake (August 28) it appears that she does not know the area very well. Maybe she has ridden through on horseback but that is not the same as living there.
The access road is narrow and the volume of traffic the development would generate would be extreme and the pedestrian crossing referred to was only provided after a petition.
The Government drive for affordable housing seems to cater for a limited sector of the population. Young people looking to buy property have little or no chance, even if they are working, because of the bank's reluctance to grant mortgages in the current economic climate, but the building still goes ahead, so who occupies the dwellings?
As for having an elitist attitude and no social conscience, how much of a conscience do the developers portray when they take more of the countryside and cram in as many houses per acre?
After all they're only thinking of the profit.
