Nus Ghani,MP, questioned on radio Uckfield

The Question:

“””

Wealden District Council has no 5 year land supply plan and no finalised Local Plan (unlike neighbouring authorities). Until these plans are submitted to Government, Developers have free rein to grab land in Wealden villages for house building. How did WDC get into this mess!

Our beautiful Wealden villages are being destroyed for commercial exploitation!
Has Nus Ghani made representation yet to Sajid Javid to limit the ransacking of our countryside?
“””
The email was used in the interview with Nus Ghani (was broadcast at about 10.40am on Fri 2nd Sept)). She didn’t answer the questions but the interviewer did put all the points to her over a period of about 7 minutes: she just talked about village schools being under used and local businesses finding it hard to find staff; she made no comment about WDC.
She did concede that she had not discussed Wealden planning issues with the Secretary of State for Communities (Sajid Javid). She said that a group of MPs in the South were meeting now to discuss infrastructure problems.
