Whilst i agree that there is a need for 'low cost' housing for local people, will the area's infrastucture be adequate? Particularly with the partial closure of local hospitals, police stations, fire stations etc. Another point is our local roads which can barely manage the current amount of traffic are in a dire state, i really can't see how they would handle the extra traffic. Also local people are constantly scratching their heads trying to find something for the young people of Grange-Over-Sands and the surrounding area something to do other than assembling on street corners, with the proposed number of dwellings at 880 this currently small issue could expand into something much larger and potentially more serious. Overall in my view the proposed developments are far to large and any development carried out should be for the benefit of local people seeking housing.
