Huge new development now proposed for Newport

This proposal, if approved, would be the largest ever allowed in Newport. Many people will feel it is out of all proportion in terms of the effect on the environment and the impact on the community.  An opposition group has been set up, and a website can be found at http://bentinckdevelopment.org.uk  This contains full details of the development. Therefore there is no longer any need to put up more information here.
