Homes plan will just add to traf­fic

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

I must share the con­cern over the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment of the old leisure cen­tre site into ac­com­mo­da­tion.

The roads in and around the town cen­tre have not been de­vel­oped for 30 years so how on earth can they be ex­pected to cope with the ex­tra traf­fic – par­tic­u­larly with Lidl to open its new store just round the cor­ner. It’s all very well local coun­cil­lors push­ing for “brown field” hous­ing, but they have no plan for deal­ing with the un­ac­cept­able con­ges­tion it cre­ates.

If we want some­thing iconic and ap­peal­ing, why not an at­trac­tive park where res­i­dents and vis­i­tors can re­lax? R Catch­pole
