Getting the balance rigth between preserving the past and making way for the future is a difficult probelm.
Here in Southwell, many ancient sites have been discovered.
In fact a lot of the town could be claimed as the site of some ancient remains.
What happens when there is a need to provide new houses in such towns?
In reality a long battle occurs between different factions.
This causes friction and stress.
A way to resolve such difficuties is to ascertain how important the sites are.
What needs preserving?
How much needs preserving is another question.
Life has to go on.
A compromise solution should be found.
Using sites for “Open Spaces” for all is one idea.
Another is to let developers have a small amount of land.
Let these sites be examples of living compromise not ancient battle grounds!
