Review this planning ‘madness’ in West Norfolk, Lynn News letters
That's to say West Winch 500; South Wootton 575 and Knights Hill 625, adding up to a total of 1,700 houses and at the national occupancy rate of 2.4 persons per household, we will have an extra 4,080 individuals to cope with in our already bursting-at-the-seams neighbourhood.
There is a lack of dentists, doctors and not that many job vacancies listed plus our roads are unable to cope with our minor rush hours. I would therefore ask, before it is too late, for the planners to think long and hard before allowing this madness to continue, I cannot understand how Lynn is to benefit from this overcrowding.
We are living in an historic national asset. Lynn must be nurtured and cared for not given over to the wholesale destruction of our fair borough.
Lastly, I was somewhat disconcerted that people are protesting about the approval to build 16 light industrial units behind Kings Avenue and Extons Place. Surely the 4,080 people in the new housing will need somewhere to be able to work and the area appears to be very close to an industrialised area already. But, of course, if we don’t build the houses we won’t need the industry – maybe we should all be protesting against carpeting our beautiful country with housing.
