Reader's letter: Priorities queried
Having read all the stories about the campaign to ‘save’ Balderton Lake I thought I would have a look at the plans — but couldn’t find any.
Instead, I discovered the proposal seems to be for a few kayaks — and I mean a few — planning to use a small section of the lake for a few short hours at a time, at selected times of the year.
Hardly a massive disruption, surely?
Yet at the same same time, there is an actual planning application just down the road for a development that will see the destruction of several trees, including many with tree preservation orders, and that seems to have had little attention.
Just a few short months ago there was a major campaign to save four trees from the chop.
Where are the priorities? — R. MILLER, Newark.
