Add several thousand more residents into an overcrowded, poor wage, seasonal work, environment when Pennyfeathers etc are built, and ‘then’ see the amount of crime and anti social behaviour here.
 
What we see now, will be something to wish for then.
 
It won’t just effect Ryde, the low life always has ‘wheels’ whether they beg, steal or borrow such.
 
Thank your caring council.

2ThePoint. I agree, scum don’t Sh*t on their own doorstep, they travel in untaxed, uninsured, no MOT vehicles. This is what large housing estates breed and harbor. God help the island once the council get started on housing the lawless idiots from the mainland. Nobody else wants them but IOW council will take them for payment!

Couldn’t care less, they don’t have to come here IF we are so bad, but, many know this is still way better than the third world ghetto’s that many mainlanders know and hate, but, not for long. Our time of enrichement is coming.

They might be saying that Islanders put an apostophe at the end of any word ending in ‘S’, and that they don’t know that mainland is one word. Just a guess.

Absolutely Bob. IOW residents need to understand the implications of building large housing developments like Pennyfeathers, 900+ homes and another 600 homes off Bullen Road, Ryde. They will not be welcome.

Hayland’s still is ‘blessed’ with such, now getting a pay rise, so perhaps the garage will soon ONLY have the ‘car’ in it. Or childrens cycles.

Interesting that on the same week Mr Bob Sausage Seeley votes against protecting our NHS from outside interference, the Russian report is released and shows we have outside interference going on..
