I whole-heartedly concur with Ras Gosse’s letter [Willoughby’s uniqueness is lost, May 5 Letters to the Editor, Langley Advance].
We moved to Langley three years ago this past January (2016).
Upon signing our contract of sale for the property in the preceding October 2012, we received a notice of development in the Willoughby area.
We attended the open house hosted by the Langley Township planners and were baffled by the lack of green space being protected.
We asked them point blank “where are the parks?” and they just smiled.
To the untrained eye, it was apparent that there were no plans for green space in the documents we reviewed.
I recall hearing that Langley was going to “learn from Surrey’s mistakes and not allow developers to take over.”
Well, in my humble opinion, that boat has sailed.
We moved here from Surrey, for the purpose of experiencing the beauty of Langley and unfortunately have already begun to plan our escape.
