More common sense here, but don't worry, people who already own houses and don't care about those who don't, and people who want to carry on living in high energy consuming houses, and people who don't like change will carry on griping and complaining.

Same old Waffle, Boring Boring; its tow the CDC way or hit the Highway Jack.
Baecon have been right all along and it is time to change the Status Quo - next years elections are coming fast so beware all Tory cannon fodder your time is up.
At the end of the day this development is just another vast Housing estate and being built on the wrong side of town - we all know it is doomed to failure and it is time local reporters spoke to the public to gauge the real anger of being ignored and kept in the dark.
And it is not only here the public are concerned with vast housing estates being proposed, but in places such as Grove, Witney, Brackley, Buckingham and elsewhere in the South East as vast areas of greenbelt, greenfield call it what you like are being ripped up. It has got to stop and even now current Tory Elected MP's are concerned at the publics anger at being ignored by their concerns and being run rough shod over - example Nadhim Zahawi MP for Stratford upon Avon. The public should have a right to say NO to approved schemes and it is not about being a Nimby either.
