Have Your Say

I like thousands don't want this to ever happen in our local area its been spoilt enough already over the years just leave the countryside and our local patches well alone for us to enjoy how we should do.Dean Anthony Evans

Surely it would make better economic sense to make better use of the existing road/rail infrastructure.Michael Gallivan
