The Northern Orbital Route scheme will affect thousands of people. Awareness of the road and the development that will come to pay for it appears extremely low: only 500 people responded to a recent consultation. Our community group has big concerns about the scheme, which we don't think has been properly planned, and the lack of public awareness. A huge area of countryside will be affected by the road and by housing. An aerial video is the ideal way of illustrating this. We believe the NOR is symptomatic of failings in planning for our county. We'd like to use it as a platform to call for a rethinking of planning to create a future that is greener, more sustainable and puts the needs of residents - not big developers - first.
