I would like to protest in the strongest possible terms at the proposed Housing Development at Milnthorpe, Heversham and Leasgill.
There appears to be no infrastructure in place or facilities for such a large influx of people and no information as to how increased traffic flow, parking and the many other problems will be dealt with. It appears the object is to turn these villages into dormitories and the explanation that this is policy laid down by a government which no doubt will not be in power when all this takes place no longer appears a valid argument.
It would appear that there is no interest in protecting areas of natural beauty and I am in a conservation area where one is required to obtain permission to put up a Sky satellite dish, which makes the above plans all the more extraordinary. I suppose that it would be too much to ask that preservation of the natural beauty of the local environment is considered more important that monetary gain.
