2016 Consultation ended 24th March for comments &/or Objections when every one in the family can object/comment, that has a separate E/mail account of any age.

Planning have advised when questioned about, maintenance, extra staff costs etc. e.g. Schools, Hospitals that they rely on in 15 years’ time people aged 3 will be working and paying taxes: -
• Whether they will be working is open to question, as many likely will be either in education still or unemployed.
• If paying taxes will only be a little as on low pay.
• Any taxes collected go into a central pot and in most cases the amount paid will be totally insufficient to pay for the up keep of this NEW TOWN
There will be a definite shortfall period of several/many years and even in time insufficient money will be paid, so council will have to put up council tax (if they have not already) to pay for councils error of judgement.
