ON behalf of the 60 objectors who supported us in opposing the proposed development in Green Drift, Royston, we would like to record our thanks to our councillors.

Every one of them, the Town Council planning committee and the Royston area committee, was against the plans in their present form.

It was evident on Wednesday that they had looked at the plans thoroughly and had carefully considered the objections.

They were prepared to stick to their principles in not accepting the plan, against the advice of their officers. We appreciated that.

We are also grateful to the 40 or so people, many standing for a long time, who turned out to hear the discussion.

Their presence made clear the strength of opposition to the plans and helped to make all our efforts worthwhile.
