COUNCILLOR’S CORNER

How history repeats itself. Regardless of your personal views about the plans for many more houses to be built in Amble over the next 10-15 years, the outcries being voiced now over the large scale housing developments’ effect upon the town’s schools, health facilities, leisure and recreational needs, were all being said in the town when plans were put forward to move Radcliffe residents here and for Gloster Park and Gloster Meadows estates. Yet these areas are very much a part of our town and the people there an integral part of our community. The national policy is more and more houses are needed so we can do little to fight that; what we can do is lobby for help to lessen the effects on our town and increase the benefit by asking for smaller properties to help our young or single people have their own homes and thus encourage them to remain here and be part of our future.    Cllr Helen Lewis
