IT cannot be right that developers dictate the agenda regarding the city's infrastructure.
Additional housing and yet another supermarket is something we definitely do not need on either the airport or the quadrant site at Derriford roundabout. Both developers, be it Sutton Harbour Holdings or Wharfside Regeneration, have no long-term interest in Plymouth's future. They build, sell, then move on to the next opportunity.
Plymouth needs long-term investment providing real jobs for the future. Most city residents would prefer to retain the airport; if this is not possible in the short term, the land has to be retained for reopening in the future.
Building more poor quality housing like the appalling examples already erected on the 504k part of the airport would be a tragedy. This is a disgraceful waste of a greenfield site.

The A386 is already gridlocked at daily commute times and the B3432 overloaded, too, without an additional 1,000-plus dwellings being built in the area they serve.
Do our political leaders have a long-term vision for the city, or are we to become just a vast housing estate sitting on the banks of the Tamar?
