    Building on this very historical flood plains will inevitably bring flooding to Salisbury or further down the Avon Valley. No amount of drainage will prevent the inevitable floods. How can this be justified. ??

    And there will still only be one road in and out! I live in Harnham and some times the traffic backs up from the Harnham roundabout to the One Stop shop! The road will become one large car park! We need a southern bypass before building any more!
    Where do the people who thinks this is a good idea live? Doubt if it’s in Harnham.
    They must only be allowed out with their Support Workers!
    Also a number of 5 bedroom houses! That’s going to help the youngsters get on the housing ladder. Probably more profitable than the usual little boxes.

    I think it is a dreadful idea. The road to town will never manage the amount of cars. And Harnham will be polluted with exhaust fumes. I thank you for ruining Harnham
