Today [28/01/09] I held a debate in Westminster Hall with Ian Wright the DCLG Minister regarding the proposed Eco Town and 120,000 homes targeted for Bedfordshire. Click Here for Hansard transcript.
Every one of you needs to do something as a result of reading this email:
A). You need to respond to the Governments online consultation at http://www.communities.gov.uk/housing/housingsupply/ecotowns/ Stating your strong views AGAINST the Eco Town.
B) you need to forward this email onto AS MANY people as possible
Why? Well, the Eco Town is an major piece in the Governments jigsaw puzzle. If granted it becomes easier to fill in the gaps and increase the urban sprawl from MK to the M1 surrounding Ampthill, Flitwick, Westoning and Harlington.
Even if the Eco Town doesn’t necessarily impinge on you now, the development which may follow as a result will do. So please fill in the consultation and forward to as many people as you can.
If you read the Ministers response you will detect some encouraging noises and a few hints!
To Liddlington and Marston – food security is a big issue and one the Minister nodded his head furiously in agreement with. Its very much worth exploiting that angle, it could be one of our strongest.
Aspley Guise – you may notice he’s looked up your web site!
Please everyone, I can’t stop the bulldozers on my own, you have to help!
Very best wishes,
Nadine Dorries MP
