On the other hand….with the need for more housing and the even stronger opposition, in all likelihood, to proposals for new houses on greenfield sites, might housing on this brownfield site not actually be worth considering? And you could be active in ensuring that the infrastructure you say is lacking is delivered as part of any development proposals, also arguing for a developer community funding contribution for other worthy causes? There can often be a good case for opposing greenfield sites by citing the availability of brownfield sites such as this. Might it not help alleviate you from housing pressure on more sensitive local sites?
