Green concerns

First published in Letters

NATURAL Resources Wales and Dwr Cymru Welsh Water have both objected to the Newport City Council’s proposal, as it stands, to build 248 dwellings (houses and flats) on contaminated land adjacent to the Glan Usk Primary School, Glebelands Park. The enviromentalistic objections include sewerage issues, nearby River Usk (Flooding risk?).

Wildlife danger, contaminated soil concerns etc. Meanwhile, convoys of lorries carrying soil (contaminated?) from the site, continue to spill part of their loads onto residential streets! In his latest churlish letter (Argus 10.3.14), Jim Dyer repeats that he objects to “more houses on the Glebelands”, but unlike Natural Resources Wales and Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, he does not give a reason for his objection. Perhaps he will target these experts next with his colourful, inaccurate, unimpressive language of no real substance.

why on earth are brian donovan and jim dyer at odds with each other over the prospect of houses been built on the glebelands,kiss and make up boys your on the same side.anyway both of you should know all the protesting in the world isnt gonna stop it as surely part of the original deal when the school was built was that 440 houses would be built there.20 years of protesting about the school got us nowhere it was still built on contaminated land.if people are daft enough to want to live there its up to them.what you should be doing is unite to insist that we want any access to this should be moved away from bank street as it already a problem now

Brian, is it not about time that we got past the vindictive **** between residents and unite against another unwanted development by the council. By the time you two grow up we'll all be living in a concrete kingdom with no green space enjoy. Grow up the pair of you and grow a set to fight against the real opposition.
