Have your say

I find the disdain that West Norfolk Borough Council has for the people of King’s Lynn breathtaking.

No planning permission has been given but the borough councillors feel they have the right to start preparation work for their destruction of priceless local green space at Lynnsport.

Cllr Beales and his colleagues are the only ones who want this development.

No doubt this is because of the council tax refund offered by central government for each new house for five years after construction.

There was no new consultation when the plans changed, a whipped vote at last week’s full council meeting and a general dereliction of duty surrounding the wishes of the electorate.

Why is it that we are being ignored on this crucial issue?
