I READ your report on the above topic by Frankie Rutland published, April 28.

I understand all the pros and cons. I feel it would be better to see what the effects real physical realities are....already under way on the Cavendish Estate and the city council's new build on the park land around the Winnall high rise flats.

Although I saw the plans for the Cavendish Estate build I did not envisage how more imposing it really is on the area the new build for the council....is right next door...may have the same effect on the area.

It seems we are building a mini-Canary Wharf in Winchester. Although some people were made aware what was going on, from my feedback not enough locals in the affected area were.
