Residents in the Manthorpe area are once again being asked to comment on the latest Larkfleet/Allison Homes proposals to build a large housing estate on nearby greenbelt/farmland.

Why? There is already sufficient land set aside in the Grantham area for house building to meet a fair share of any spurious targets which may be set by the Government.

Larkfleet were well aware from the beginning that the land they have selected did not feature in any recent “action plan” for possible housing development.

Do we really want to sacrifice yet more of our countryside just so that voracious speculators and their friends can line their pockets to the detriment of the rest of us?

I cannot see any reason why these fatuous proposals should be sanctioned.

I fully support Councillor Wootten’s objections to the unwelcome and ill-conceived plans.
