    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Traffic's bad enough around there already. There's plans to build a relief road on that side of Stratford, but a lot of people are up in arms about the design/location.

    The root cause is being missed. We are overpopulated, but no politician will dare say so, or raise his head above the parapet on the subject. It's a nettle that really needs grasping.

    Planners seem to be getting the message that brown field sites should be made use of. (Although plenty of green field sites are still being dug up!)

    They're trying to put up industrial units near me. Green belt, but also a flood plain and with already inadequate roads. They are completely barmy in their worshipping of the little God of money.

    Of course, the problem will become someone elses once the units are built, likely the existing residents who already suffer with flooding.

    Another area I'm not to keen to see new houses placed. The roads around there are bad at the best of times.

    If nothing else, developers are persistent: https://www.rugbyadvertiser.co.uk/ne...e-site-2610632

    It seems that developers not only appeal if their requests are turned down but are demanding costs of the appeal to be met by planning departments. Of course, this is nothing more than a strong arm tactic and the one with the deepest pockets (developer) wins.

    The tactic is being used near me at the moment, and I think the developer will win, despite everything (road suitability, ecology, wildlife, etc. etc.) going against them.

    It stinks!

    I wonder if 'no firm plans' is an euphemism for 'holding out for a better offer': https://www.stratford-herald.com/109...estaurant.html

    I'd be guessing that the thoughts are to hold out until any housing market fall after covid has passed. Pointless selling it if you can hang on for a couple of years and don't need the money.
