Turning Kemble into a housing estate is pure madness. Once lost, that superb airfield will never be replaced. And don't even begin to discuss the vast number of jobs and revenue for the local area that will be lost forever together with at least 5 flying clubs. For heavens sake, they have only just installed runway lighting.

Oh, and another thing. Cotswold District Council have a habit of granting planning permission for developers on the strict understanding that the developer builds shops and other amenities. That happened on another Cirencester estate. When the developer failed to raise any interest in the shops, he merely built more houses. Too late to turn back stated CDC.

So what is all this about? Houses? No; money.
