Have your say

What an excellent letter from Chris Smith (Lynn News, March 24) on ‘Hunstanton Needs Support’.

I agree. Before a single home is built, infrastructure must be put in place first - common sense.

But to others who want to build homes it is not important. For property developers it is all about money. They don’t care about the area or the people or if the development is going to spoil lives. They will just pick up a nice fat cheque, put it in the bank and move on to the next development.

Of course, there will always be vested interests by other people where big money is concerned.

Do the councillors have aan idea how long it takes to get a doctor’s appointment or get a child into school. Councillors should stop telling us its in our best interest, Listen to the people for a change, not people who have vested interests in these projects and stand to make a lot of money.

Look at the ‘white elephant’ called The Spinney in Hunstanton which was revamped to the tune of £300,000. Most people did not want it but it still went ahead. It is hardly used and a total waste of money. Who wanted that? Not the people. Who had a vested interest in that?

It is like the £50 billion the government wants to waste on HS2. No-one wants it. This is a politically driven vanity project complete white elephant, but there will be those at the top with vested interests who will make fortunes. So people not listened to again - they call this democracy?
