SIR - I have just seen on a billboard that 181 new houses are planned for Wyvern Park.

Whatever is North Yorkshire Highways thinking of when it says there is no problem with traffic! I recently went into Skipton and it took me six minutes to get down the Bailey to the top of town and due to the gridlock at the roundabout another eight minutes to go down the high street and it wasn’t a market day.

This is a ludicrous situation with around 500 new houses being built. How is that going to affect traffic flow with at least 500 more cars. Fisher Medical Practice and Dyneley House Surgery – can you take on upwards of 500 new patients and where are the children going to go to school?

Skipton might have been voted one of the best places to live in the country but not for much longer I fear.
