This development thrusts into valuable greenbelt/open space. An additional 660 cars generated will spill out on to already extremely congested roads. 330 houses would generate enough children to fill a single form entry primary school + requirement for additional secondary places. Where are they going to school? How is our already overstretched and very busy hospital going to serve this development? What about GP care? Approving the building of homes on this scale with no thought to the needs of the residents who live in them, nor those residents already in the area, is not a responsible action for our council to take .
