Original submission

We do not have sufficent services to cope with another 1000 people & their cars. We have to wait 2/3 weeks to see a Doctor or Dentist at present. The 'Supermarkets' can't cope with all the extra tourists/campers etc.in the summer. The school is already full.and parking is at a premium. ALL services need to be increased BEFORE thinking of adding more houses. What about the wild life, we have just introduced the Red Squirel & have bats that come into our garden at Seaview? The land allocated is already being used for crops it's not as if it's standing doing nothing every year.
