RESIDENTS prepare for a ‘fight’ over green belt plans (Express, July 26) Stephen McDermott: Can’t stand people whinging about building on green belt. Don’t care that there’s a housing crisis and young people can’t get on the property ladder and start a new home, either stuck with their parents or ripped off by private landlords. What they really mean is “Don’t go spoiling my view, or making the place look untidy with young families, and ruining the value of my over-inflated property, which I inherited or bought for next to nothing 30 years ago.” Danny Hibell: Full of NIMBY’s where do you all think people are going to live? At some point building on green belt land will need to happen. Liz Donovan: Quite apart from the loss of habitat, bulldozing a marsh, filling in a pond, destroying the habitats of owls etc, it’ll make Newquay Drive and the Greenside Estate even busier than they already are, and lead to even more pollution at the Whirley Rd/ Chester Rd junction. Building houses where there is no public transport early morning and after 18.00, and very little public transport during the day will also add to the nightmare that is getting into and out of Macc on any day aside from school holidays. Adam Jones: People need places to live simple as. If we want to save the owls then tell all your family to stop having kids. Maria Wood: Brown field sites should be made available first and of course all the empty houses/ offices. If these were offered cheaper we wouldnt need to touch the greenbelt at all.
CAMERAS will catch shoppers parked at the medical centre (Express, July 26) Clare Barrett: I work at the medical centre and not even the staff can park there so we have to park on Brock Street if we can get a space or anywhere we can. Adele Woods: As the past few times I’ve been to the doctors I’ve been sat in the waiting room for 1 1/2 to 2 hours despite having appointment times I can completely understand why they have brought it in as you always have them few people who take advantage so the rest of us have to pay. It’s unfair, it’s another stress added on top of a stressful anxious time for people. Kirsty Abbott: I was there today, it’s very easy and free and if you are longer than an hour just tell them at reception and you’re fine. Michelle BaileyEdwards: The signs should be more clear and they should have warned people in plenty of time before they put the things in.”
