A lot of new builds being applied for around the County which is good to see as houses are needed.  Hopefully, the increase in supply will bring the price of houses, which are too expensive.   A new Communications Column for Woodstown Shopping Centre.  Cappami applying again on Oldcourt Road.  Ardstone Homes up on Stocking avenue making some changes to house types.
