Privacy problem

First published in Letters

I FEEL I must respond to Chris Evans Rogerstone Grassroots April 28 regarding affordable houses being built on the former Dudley Site. He says Seren Group had done its best to work within and listen to the local community. I agree affordable housing is a requirement in this area, but not to the detriment of local residents. Part of the development overlooks the rear of my property with a block of five two storey terraced houses with their gardens adjoining my drive. I objected to this part of the plan from the outset to the planning department of Newport City Council, Seren Group, and the local Community Council, but to no avail. It makes me very angry that as individuals we stand no chance against developers or local authorities coming in and taking away our privacy.

Plans in Rogerstone seem to top the agenda especially when it comes to privacy. Ask other constitutes of the ward,
Pye corner station is one, Residents object to no avail.
Sorry councillor evans it seems to be in your back yard?

Unfortunately, in planning there is NO right to privacy, nor view, and only limited right to light.
