This doesn’t look good, and is a big setback for those residents campaigning against the Wort’s Causeway development. Councillor Swanson is suggesting in the letter below (click to enlarge) that the council has decided that development on the sites concerned (“GB1 and GB2”) is unavoidable if the required new housing targets are to be met. She claims that “the new green belt line will be held”, but it’s hard to believe that if it can be moved once, it won’t be moved again, making the whole concept redundant. As the letter says, there will be an opportunity for residents to speak at a meeting on 29 May. In the meantime, please feel free to make any comments below.
