I live in the immediate area and am totally in favour of Toad Hole development. The new road layout will improve the traffic around our area- the city desperately needs new housing and school etc.and it is also likely to bring improved transport services such as buses which will greatly benefit all the community particuarly the elderly and infirm. I parking has never been a problem in this area and will not be beacuse of this development- nearly all the houses and flats in the immediate area have their own dedicated parking or driveways so this will not be affected. I have spoken to many of the opposers whose 'arguments' against really don't have any standing and to say (quote) 'it will 'ghettoise our area' is quite shocking. This is just an example of the NIMBY attitude (Not in my backyard).

Three quid to listen to some NIMBY dinosaurs whinging? Will there be complementary anti-depressants?
