    Resident at Picket Piece. As you are aware, we fought the planning application but lost on appeal.

    With that appeal we also lost any control over the developer to bring benefits to the existing community such as mains sewerage, gas supplies etc.

    Given your stated views on the environment and sustainability, the opportunity to further reduce the carbon footprint of the existing community has been refused to all but a few (if any)by not allowing connection to these mains utility services. Is there anything that you can do to raise this issue that possibly may put pressure onto the developers to provide these services to existing Picket Piece homes that will form approximately 10% of the PP community in the future?

    Thank you …Chris
