I understand that there are plans to develop the land around the Newtown are of Langport, expanding north and east of the town up to Wearne.

I live in the Newtown area and find it difficult to believe you are considering house building in this area when there are new houses on the Kelways estate still unsold and there are vacant rundown properties in Langport town centre that could provide good town centre development.

I realise that developing a green plot of land is a lot easier and less hassel than a town centre spot but please focus on developing the town centre first. It will reduce pollution in the long run and reinvigorate a degenerated area.

Also developing the fields to the north and east of Langport can you guarantee the footpaths will be protected?
