REGARDING your report in last week's Chronicle 'More Feltham folk are living it large'. The figures on obesity cannot really be a surprise when the council continues to grant planning permission for fast-food outlets.
In the stretch between the Crown and Sceptre junction and the Three Horseshoes junction, there are at least 20 fast-food/ takeaway outlets, not including the pubs, restaurants and super-market cafes.
I doubt they would give permission for 20 betting shops or amusement arcades in one High Street. Food for thought.
Obviously, attracting commercial rates and income is more important than reducing the cost to the healthcare system.
