Get a grip
RECENTLY I helped with a questionnaire circulated to all households in Strensall.
The objective was to find out what people want in their village.
The majority said that they felt the village was big enough, that the infrastructure could not cope with more people, that the school is full to capacity and the traffic flow in the village is a very serious problem.
Now we have a new proposal for building houses on the green belt in the village.
The parish council is opposed and is saying so, but where are the residents?
Don’t just sit there and moan after it has happened. Do something.
Write to City of York Council, which seems to think it is okay to build on the green belt in an overcrowded village. Talk to your local representative, Mr Doughty, who is genuinely concerned.
Go to the City of York Council meeting and let them know how we all feel.
Come on, Strensall – get a grip and stop this development. It has not been approved yet!
