I have been putting various information on a GIS for the area I live in. In light of tomorrow’s elections, I thought it would be useful for people to see Green belt changes and proposed development on a map. Note that the removal of Field Farm from the Green belt resulted in a less defensible Green belt boundary. This happened when the Council was controlled by the Liberal Democrats/Labour.
The Conservatives, who promised to protect our Green belt, have only made it worse – voting to remove two more chunks of land in our area (and more elsewhere), thus further fragmenting the remaining Green belt.
Multiple policies from the past have led us to this point – the question is, who will YOU vote for tomorrow? As my name might suggest, I will be voting for a candidate Independent of the political parties who will fight for our local area.
