Flaxby Park Ltd illustrates the arrogance and patronising approach of some developers.

Your Say
Prince of Wales roundabout in Harrogate

Letter: Highways - Confused by roadworks policy

Traffic flow through Harrogate, never good, became worse with two lane closures at Prince of Wales roundabout. No work was or had been done in the closed lanes, so why were they closed?

Letter: Waste collection - I can’t justify annual charge
