Original submission

Leisure facilities and diverse village shops and community spaces can really help ease the shock of such a quick influx to the area and encourage local enterprise. There are a fair few families residing here and investment in healthy sporting venues will allow the youth to be challenged and their energies channelled positively in communal settings. Also the work force in the area can have a healthy balance if access to a gym or swim after or before work is close by. According to the newsletter sent to us the suggestion is to expand the business or industrial park, if this can be complemented 60-40% with community based social spaces the surrounding new build and stanway communities can find common ground to begin assimilation and accomodation.
A family friendly cycle route to the zoo would encourage families to access such a resource and be environmentally sound.
Can toxicity levels of the surrounding lands be assessed as berries are growing in the area near chiquitos and even the birds are avoiding them - for the sake of children and toddlers this information would be helpful. If good sound ground can be designated, perhaps more such fruit picking and nature grove experiences can be developed with the community.
