the proposed development of new homes / business is way too large in comparison to the existing village . the infrastructure as described is inadequate and out of date . the doctors surgery is virtually non existent and if rumours are to to be believed will soon be actually non existent . the schools as they are could not accommodate the influx of potentially hundreds of children . the post office is now a counter in the local shop/garage manned as far as I can tell by whomever happens to be serving in the shop.

The increase in road traffic on what is already a busy road is a matter for concern if present car ownership trends continue ie average 2 cars per household plus the business development traffic of employees and delivery vehicles . Potentially thousands of extra vehicles using the roads past the schools and through the village centre every day ! .
