Support for homes fight


I fully support the local residents in their fight to stop any housing development on the Quarry Hill Road site.

Why select this environmentally-friendly site to build on when the Government is now considering advocating building on greenfield sites.

Surely the planners should be looking elsewhere to build the houses, there are greenfield sites over the border from Ilkeston that could be developed for housing.

Ilkeston is awash with new housing estates. If the site is allowed to be developed on (which I sincerely hope not), then the vehicular traffic from this site will only compound the road traffic problems evident in this area.
