The news that Larkfleet have once more applied to develop land north of Manthorpe is dismaying.
Yes, they have reduced the number of houses from 1,000 to 550, but the idea of routing traffic through Rosedale Drive and Longcliffe Road is madness, as anyone who has attempted to exit the Manthorpe estate at school times knows only too well.
The original proposal included a roundabout at the A607/Newark hill junction, the only part of the plan to have any merit, but now this is omitted.
Nobody, apart from those who will benefit financially, will want this development.
