Logic behind development escapes me
10:00am Wednesday 20th March 2013 in Letters
Sir – As a resident of Brize Norton and former RAF dependent, I am fully aware of the strategic necessity of RAF Brize Norton.
What I don’t understand is why anyone would build a residential complex of 700 (at the moment) houses east of Carterton, immediately adjacent to RAF Brize Norton.
Residents of the proposed development would suffer air, noise and light pollution resulting from their proximity to the station.
RAF Brize Norton will not offer increased employment in the immediate area for and expanded population.
Could someone explain the logic behind this proposed development to me ?
