Building developers should help build a new reservoir


WE are all concerned about the shortage of our water supplies, yet nobody in authority has considered this problem when giving planning permission to these builders who are making large profits out of building hundreds of houses around our area.

I would suggest that part of the planning process should include a clause stating that the builders should pay a proportion of their vast profits to help towards the cost of building a new reservoir!

Arlington reservoir was built around fifty years ago and how many houses have been built since then I wonder?

Something must be done about this serious situation.
