Development is welcome

AFTER reading about local residents’ objections to proposed developments of homes to the rear of Mansfield Road, Alfreton, I would like to suggest any builders interested in building new homes come and have a look at Alfreton Road, South Normanton.

The road as a whole has been neglected for some time, the council don’t seem to care and there is land at the rear of the old filling station (now a car wash) which has become a dumping ground.

There are also derelict terraced houses next to the aforementioned car wash which are an eyesore and have been so for years.

I for one would welcome a new development to smarten the area up and I am sure many other local residents would.
