I agree with everything the draft plan is trying to achieve especially regarding:- 1) School
placesbeing kept in step with increases in housing development. We cannot
afford to approve any more housing until we can provide more school places. 2).
Retail- Malmesbury would beneift from a Supermarket and regular street market
that would complement the High Street and not threaten it. My worry with any
housing development is that it's built with only profit in mind and not
necessarily in keeping with the area. Development needs to be sympathetic,
practical housing and not lots of 3 storey town houses packied into a tiny
space with little to no garden and overlooking everyone. Gleeson absolutely
should not be approved before the local plan has been completed otherwise it
sets a precedent for developers everywhere to just 'get in there first' and do
whatever they like.
