For 40 years, there has been a gap in the jigsaw of a Norwich housing estate which was left unfinished.
Finally, the gap at Bowthorpe's Three Score is now being filled - and it perhaps cannot come soon enough
New housing developments can often cause controversy amongst existing residents, not least because of quite understandable fears about whether infrastructure will be put in place to cope with the demand. However these homes have been expected for many years - and any concerns have to be balanced against the need for new homes in our area, particularly affordable ones.
Any new development can't just be homes on their own. They need the shops, schools and places at GP surgeries so the whole community - not just those moving in - can cope.
