Letter: Southwater development - ‘Scales balanced against local people’
On November 21, I spoke on behalf of the local residents of Southwater on DC/17/2025, a planning application to amend previous conditions that would allow the developer to sell 20 houses of the 193 approved before necessary roadwork is completed.
