I was dismayed to learn of the development for Somerby Hill and the Spittlegate Level.
Like Barbara in her letter (30th Septmber) - which I agree with - I do not see how this development will solve any of Grantham’s problems. The loss of countryside and Wildlife will be far greater. If Grantham really does need more houses, can’t they be built on brownfield sites; ie. the old police station?
Also instead of building new factory units, why don’t they refurbish the many empty ones spread across the town?
As far as building more shops is concerned, we can’t fill the ones in the town centre at the moment, so what’s the point?
