Woodland not the best place

SIR, I writing to you as I read last week’s article regarding the new development at the woodland site at Atlantic Village where a McDonalds, hotel and Brewers Fair is hoping to be erected.

I for one and I’m sure there must be many others, think that this woodland site is not the ideal place for development - maybe it is for the profits of the companies, but not for the wildlife that resides there.

I understand that these companies will bring more jobs to the town and help our local economy but at what cost?

I feel it will be costly to nature and wildlife. I’m sure there are other sites as suitable without destroying woodland.

Yours faithfully, Neil Inch.
