I read earlier in the week that the council has approved the building of another 803 houses near the Salhouse Road.

The newspapers are then full of nightmare scenarios at A&E units up and down the country, with major hospitals, including ours in Norwich, being unable to cope with the ever-increasing numbers of people.

When are these councillors going put a stop to developers squeezing more and more houses onto any site with a bit of space, without first hinking of the effect that these developments are having on the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s resources?

It’s quite a while since I left school, but I seem to recall in my maths lessons, that two doesn’t go into one!
