Letter: Need for better planning in Whitby

editorial image

I witnessed contractors marking trees for being chopped down on the proposed development at Sneaton Castle Farm and also saw dozens of rats dashing out of the barns...Harrisons and Scarborough Council did not seem interested.

Also, I do not know how our local GP surgery and practice feel about the influx of all the new residents and just how they will be able to cope with the many additional patients.

Seems to me that local planners and councillors never seem to take this into consideration when granting permission.

I am sure most of the local facilities and schools are being stretched to the limits.

Makes you wonder who benefits from all this.
