Have your say

I am writing to you as I feel the people of Mansfield should understand that Littleworth and Great Central Road is an industrial estate and the residents who live here don’t matter!

In the past few days the old Mansfield Brewery site has been turned in to a lorry trailer park. We the residents on Littleworth were not informed and we did not have a say in whether this was appropriate for our neighbourhood.

There has been a security cabin put in place directly opposite my property and there is a complete clear view into our living room both day and night.

We have a newborn baby and now my partner does not feel comfortable breastfeeding in our living room both day and night. We could put the blinds and curtains down, but we don’t want to live in darkness all day round.

There is now a constant flow of lorries going in and out of the Littleworth entrance making the already busy junction with Baums Lane and Great Central Road even worse. With King Edward’s Primary School so close, surely this makes a potential incident possibly involving a child. There are lorries going in and out all day and into the late evening so there is a constant hum noise loud enough that we can hear it over the television.

I am sure I am not the only one concerned that the decision to allow this happen is completely inappropriate for the area.

I feel this should be reported so people understand that our basic human right of living a happy life is important.
