You would think all that would be enough to put people off moving there... 😛 that and the traffic bottleneck!!Well, yeah... there's a big hospital alright, although that isn't necessarily a facility for the exclusive use of dundonalders. I was referring to local amenities and facilities more than anything... and yeah, schools are the obvious one, but then you have to think of the pull and strain on infrastructure/amenities generally (like roads, traffics, sewage, broadband provision etc).
Usually I would wax lyrical about Comber at this point but we seem to be on the receiving end of a housing expansion too without any suggestion of an increase in local amenity provision so we are likely to be in the same boat. Are houses being built anywhere else across the province or just BT16/BT23? 😩
Planning leaves a lot to be desired. I don't know the ins and outs of planning legislation but it seems to be possible in other parts of the UK to put obligations on developers to provide infrastructure yet that doesn't seem to happen here.
