The facilities on Grange Park as they stand at present, i.e. doctors, dentist, pre school, nursery and primary school, are only just big enough to cope with the residents living on Grange Park. I fail to see how they can accommodate more that will come with this development. Further more, it will imcrease traffic flow to the junction 15 round a bout which is already saturated and unable to cope most mornings following the introduction of the warehouses. As a resident of grange park, one of the attractions of the area for my family and i is the green space surrounding the estate which will ge blighted by this housing development. I know of many people who cannot sell their houses at present aa people aren't buying so is there really such a shortage of houses we have to build on every piece of green space we can find?
