I was fascinated to read Kevin Horkin’s views about housing development in the Ribble Valley.

I would be even more fascinated to learn which of his comments he feels do not apply to the “Standen Village” as proposed in the Core Strategy.

“Large scale development”, “high levels of pollution”, “green lung”, “huge increase in traffic” all apply fourfold to the Standen Village so beloved of his Ribble Valley Borough Council.

Am I alone in wondering just what incentives have been offered to propose and keep proposing this desecration of our countryside for the obscene financial gain of one lucky landowner?
