Credit where credit is due.
After reading one of the numerous pages which contained important news of the valuable work being done by our MP Huw Merriman, I do believe we should also recognise others who have contributed to express the concerns of the residents of Little Common regarding the A259.
In fact, it was our local independent councillor Stuart Earl who organised a public meeting late last year, to which Mr Merriman refers. He brought together the leader of the county council and a representative for Highways England.
Over 150 local people expressed their concerns and urged those in authority to listen and take to the highest level, the fears to public health and road safety or every resident.
If you live along Barnhorn Road and Little Common Road, the A259, your lives have been blighted - it will only get worse as the developments begin.
Having recently discussed progress with Councillor Earl, he informed me that a senior officer at ESCC has undertaken work on linking the new Northern Approach Road with the A259, which is encouraging.
Although making no promises, if this is affordable, it is so encouraging to hear that our MP has also responded at the highest level, so let us hope that all this effort delivers results.
It is the very least central government can do to compensate our village for all the extra building they have imposed on us.
Developers and land owners have and will continue to make millions. I think they should contribute to the cost of a bypass.
