No to development in any part of the Green Belt or AONB

A quote from http://www.bucksfreepress.co.uk/…/14650734.This_week_s_let…/

No to development in any part of the Green Belt or AONB by the WDC planning policy. The threat: “If the plan does not show how we will meet housing need, the inspector could fail it – then it’s open season for speculative developers to fill a planning vacuum.” contained above has the whiff of the post-Brexit emergency budget – and we all know what happened to that! On 18th July in a speech to the House of Commons Sajid Javid stated: “The Green Belt is absolutely sacrosanct… Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we shouldn’t be carrying out any development there”. So, if WDC reject Green Belt and AONB development, then central government will not overturn their decision. Come on WDC and stand up for your community.
