Full list of Town Plan comments received at the Packhorse Fair

Each of the following comments is a transcription of what was written on a Post-it at the Packhorse Fair. (Some people wrote on other people’s Post-its, and some stuck one Post-it on top of another saying “agree” or something similar. Square brackets have been used to help make sense of this).
