ISN'T Eddie Holden forgetting all the thousands of people who signed the petition against Mereham? Yes of course there are people who would like to make money out of selling their land, but how short sighted is that? Mereham would be a nightmare for so many people, the roads to Cambridge would never cope, it is bad enough now for those trying to get into work. Local villages would be swamped and a way of life for many will change for the worse. Once we lose our countryside it is gone for ever, and there are thousands of us who do care about what our children and grandchildren will inherit The councillors are there to represent the local people and I am sure the majority of local people still do not want Mereham.
