Why I'm dreading the school holidays

IN response to the article in The Journal (March 12) we consider that clarification is required.

Residents who purchased homes in the Ullswater vicinity were fully aware about the development plans for the site that Persimmon Homes have been granted planning permission for (known as Lark Rise) but were never told that the sole access for the site would be via the 'minor' access road namely Ullswater.

IN response to the article in The Journal (March 12) we consider that clarification is required.

Residents who purchased homes in the Ullswater vicinity were fully aware about the development plans for the site that Persimmon Homes have been granted planning permission for (known as Lark Rise) but were never told that the sole access for the site would be via the 'minor' access road namely Ullswater.

Residents were also advised that the density of the site would be similar to the current Trinity Park development which with 100 new homes it clearly is not.

There is of course the outstanding issue with regards to the historic landfill on site that remains piled as high as a house that remains unresolved.

A formal complaint was made to Waveney District Council but after numerous months this remains acknowledged but unanswered.

The photograph showing a lorry on the path is just an example of the continued stress and disruption that residents continue to face each and every day.

Today this included fully loaded lorries speeding backwards and forwards.

Ten mile per hour signs have been erected by Persimmon Homes to no avail - with the Easter Holidays upon us and children playing how long will it be before there is a serious accident - perhaps someone will then listen to our concerns?
