The extra traffic from the new houses won't be much to worry about either; it'll still be a cul-de-sac, just with 42 houses instead of 22.
looking at the national average of cars per household , I would think your looking at
28 cars for 20 houses or more if they are 3 bedrooms
I would consider that an large increase in traffic on a rd like this?
I would like to see alternate access to the site if that was possible.
I'm not objecting to the building of new houses ,we all need somewhere to live
But Access seems to be the main issue. This Rd. is just not suitable
Also why is the dam been decommissioned ? the selling off of land owned by the water companies seems to be more common place. As soon as we have a dry period
We are told to stop using our hose pipes. Investment in storage of water should be top of these companies agendas. Just like every thing these days its how can we make money fast. In my opinion the Water should have remained a Nation asset.
But that's an another issue.
