Restore 'Normandy'

8:20am Thursday 31st July 2014

UNLIKE Michael O'Neil (Penarth Times, July 24) I think that it would be wrong to pander to the obvious wishes of the owner of 'Normandy' to flatten/alter it as it would send out the wrong message. That message being, that if you leave a building to rot for long enough you will be able to get your way.

Approve this wonderful sports facility

10:16am Thursday 19th June 2014

Contrary to what Peter Thomas stated (12/06) I am fully aware of the previous Stanwell school application, and the fact that it was scuppered by the then spineless Vale planners who gave far too much weight to the objections of a few very vocal local residents, and imposed such onerous restrictions on the use of the sports pitch, that it was economically unviable.
