1.Re. Woodhouse Lane
If you were to observe to narrow lane and the traffic that already exists ,particularly when the Dallam School is using the playing fields, you would realise that it is impossible to pass at many points and even more cars would make it worse on a regular basis.
2. If affordable housing were to become reality, it would be necessary for owners to have at least one car as there are no facilities in the village- and with the ever- increasing cost of fuel , no work, no shops, an over-subscribed school the need to travel ,hardly makes life affordable and goes nowhere to improving the carbon footprint.
Re. Heversham site of Dallam School.
Do get your facts correct as to present ownership and their plans for the future use.
It appears that to build up to 79 new dwellings in a village of only 220 houses, this would be a gross over- development.
As you are now prepared to consider using Green Belt Land , why not look at areas suitable for a whole new village where you can start with a clean sheet and build in shops ,schools etc. instead of attempting to add on bits to areas which are already pleasant places in which to reside.
