I am very pleased to hear that local residents have been listened to over the controversial proposed DISC development in Ashgrove Avenue.
If the local community does not want a project of this type in their area they should be able to block it. UKIP policy is all about returning power to the people and giving them the chance to decide on key issues in their community. I am glad that in this case the views of the local community have been listened to.
I hope that DISC will now be able to find a more suitable venue for this project.
