Section 1. Housing. I agree. Section 2. Housing Mix. Smaller dwellings may be
required. However, small houses are inefficient in that they occupy too much
land and these small dwellings should be incorporated into small apartment-style
buildings with appropriate underground parking facilities. Section 3. Having
been a resident of Malmesbury for over 25 years the shopping facilities have
significantly deteriorated. I shop at Waitrose on a regular basis and waste time
and energy resources travelling to and from the nearest Waitrose. Having the
named store located at the proposed site would benefit both residents and local
retailers alike. Section 4. Bringing in new businesses to give employment is a
positive. However, traffic would inevitably increase and a sustainable traffic
plan would be needed to be implemented at the same time. Section 5. It has been
obvious to all in the past that school/nursery places should be provided as a
forerunner to building masses of small houses for families. I am dubious that
the Council will succeed this time. Section 6. As above in Section 5, well -
intentioned. However, who will pay? Section 7. Has this not been the case in the
past. If not, what not? Section 8. Positive view. No solar panels at all would
