Yes we should have them,but only when we improve the infrastructure to take the increased population... and not before.

Trouble is ,the only infrastructure we will get is traffic lights and sewage pipes.

Forget the sewage pipes, we'll just get the lights and 600 more cars to go with them to choke our kids and give them Asthma.

Oh, I almost forgot. In a society where global warming is a massive issue and travelling distances in cars is adding to the global warming effect, shouldn't we be discouraging people from coming to live in Featherstone to live in these new housing estates and commuting hundreds of miles a week to work. Surely the answer is local people walking to work locally and not adding to global warming?

As I understand it the idea is for people to move up the property ladder to these 200k houses leaving wdh and social houses for the less well off to rent or buy. not sure if it would work but i think that is the theory. First thing Fev needs before any houses is a bypass

It will be interesting what the Town Council have to say about the proposal.

The Town Council as a body will not have a view. Individual Councillors will have. I am sure will express their views when the proposal becomes a
reality, at present it is at the consultation stage.

Here is an interesting link to the Guardian newspaper.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2012/may/29/3m-young-adults-live-parents
Three million young adults in the UK living with their parents because they cannot afford housing.
Featherstone's answer is not to build any homes that they CAN afford but to build more homes they CANNOT afford.
Tremendous.
