went along just before 7pm. when pushed, details were a bit thin other than to say access was via caxton hill. they estimate 700-800 car journeys a day... so no pressure on an already busy town.
i got the feeling that the care home idea was just to say that they had offered the council the option.
I explained that we don't want 'affordable' homes. they'll be filled by out of towners ( and i'd imagine a fair few from Europe) and why can't they pay the full price for houses like the rest of us?
before anyone fires back to ask why I'm against 'affordable' homes. Person A buys house at full cost. gets up early each day and travels to and from work and pays their way. Person B gets 'discount' on their affordable home so pays about half what Person A paid. which begs the question... why bother working hard when someone else gets a house half price because they either don't work or have a low paid job?
and where will the kids go to school? oh, of couse, they'll push our hertford born kids out of their school places.
am standing well back for the Guardianistas to have their two penneth.
