I was a bit underwhelmed by Taylor Wimpey's exhibition on proposals for Old Richard Lander School site (West Briton 11October).
To find out more please look at their website (incorrect in West Briton)- www.richardlanderschool.co.uk - and send them or me your comments.
I understand there is to be 35 per cent affordable housing, not 40 per cent as per website.
I am disappointed that there are no flats for the elderly included because it is not possible to find a better site on flattish land and connected to all facilities.
The Church needs a better deal on parking with some spaces reserved for its own use. It also needs good access to the food bank.
The public open space needs a bit of a rethink.
I know the extra, say, 400, cars will be a nightmare on Highertown corridor. However, particularly after my efforts to point up highways issues on proposal for 1500 houses at the western park and ride, I have to be realistic - this is going to happen. If you have views on the exit from the development onto A390 please let me know.
Please note that there is a possibility that the hated junction at the end of Newbridge Lane will be traffic lighted as part of this scheme.
