Further to your article on the housing development planned for West Durrington there are several questions which many of us would like answers to.

Who presently owns the land – is it the Somerset family, the farmer who farms the fields or the developers who hope to erect 700 houses there?

Who put up the Private, No Right of Way notices?

When is building work likely to begin?

Will the clearly designated public footpaths be respected now and retained when building work commences?
