THE GOVERNMENT PLANNING INSPECTOR HAS APPROVED THE BUILDING OF 4000 HOUSES ON GREEN BELT LAND TO THE NORTH OF OUR VILLAGE.
The full report is HERE
Members of the Council are to consider the Inspector’s report and the adoption of the Plan at the meeting of the Council on Monday 22 December 2014 (at 7pm, with doors opening at 6:30pm).
Please write to Neil Clarke, the Leader of the Council, pointing out that 12 days just before Christmas is inadequate for consideration of all these changes, and certainly inadequate for the public to be properly consulted. Given the legal challenge to the basic housing figures, ask him to delay the adoption until the result of that is known. We do not suggest you writing to Tollerton’s councillor as we understand she is not intending to attend the meeting.
