LETTER: Run off would cause a flood

About ten days ago we received a notification from Wates that they were considiring seeking planning for 220 houses at Walstead on the other side of the road from Walstead Grange where we have lived for more than 50 years.

The run off from the development when it rained would all go into the small stream which flowes through Walstead and 50 meters from our house and buildings. A flash flood would see us under water!
