I trust sanity will return soon

I was shocked and annoyed to hear of this delay in this vital link road.

The advisers to our council should have their fees returned,that they could miss this sort of technical detail,and put our council in this invidious position of having to go back on a decision made in April,is poor practice.

It just gives unnecessary kudos to the professional protestors and causes a delay we can do without.

How 500 people can endeavour to stop this project,when thousands are in favour is ridiculous. Ask all residents on The Ridge, who will have to undergo a further delay, and especially when our New Link Road from Bexhill is open later this year,and traffic has no where else to go.

I trust that at the next council meeting, sanity and procedure is returned to normal,and the plans will be passed.
