Wow! Looking at the map (EDP, February 22) showing the amount of land to be filled with housing at Long Stratton is incredible.
This will put more pressure on the A140 north and south and one wonders what Mr John Fuller of South Norfolk Council means and I quote: “There will have to be some horse trading.”
If Long Stratton is going to have forced on it such an enormous development doubling the size of the ‘village’ then the by-pass should be dualled.
John Fuller owes it to the residents of South Norfolk to pave the way of a dual bypass as the Conservative Government promised in 1989/90 but failed to keep their pledge and the Highway Agency subsequently sold back properties that were bought for dualling the A140.
The housing development proposed by Mr Fuller needs to deliver the right infrastructure, can that be done by “horse trading”?
