Never-ending concrete jungles.
I live in the Thorntree Estate. I have a six-year-old daughter. As a family we enjoy the walks along the paths up Flatts Lane - we enjoy the views, we enjoy the sound of wild birds, and we enjoy the wildlife.
What have we to look forward to with Theakston land plans? An extension to the never-ending concrete jungles destroying the local beauty spot.
The large numbers of people visiting Flatts Lane from around the local area, they come from South Bank, Grangetown, Lazenby, Ormesby and all the local estates. Even from Stockton, so the message to Theakston Land is go away find someplace else to destroy. Regenerate some brown sites that need it. Keep your grubby hands off our local heritage. We don't want Eston Hills destroying.
When I was 10 years old I spent a long 10 days in the children's ward of Eston Hospital. I had a great view of the sun rising over the hills, watching rabbits feed and play, the birds chirping away early in the morning, a sense of freedom - that was the best tonic that helped my recovery and the other kids'. We want our natural landscape, we want our natural beauty spot and paths through the woodland once again not destroying.
