Marco Longhi MP
I have been working closely with residents to stop any of the proposed developments on our Greenbelt via the Call to Sites initiative. I understand the Labour group had a behind closed door meeting about the Seven Cornfields site yesterday and have been quick to release confidential information.
I welcome any news that a proposed development will not be allowed on our Greenbelt. However, we do not want politicians jumping ahead and inadvertently helping developers. I have contacted Wolverhampton Council for a full explanation of what decision has been made and to ensure the actions of Labour have not jeopardised the protection of our precious greenbelt.
I genuinely hope the early announcement is correct and that this will support the actions taken by ourselves in Dudley, by Mayor Andy Street and other colleagues by the Government itself to safeguard Greenbelt land via the National Planning Framework.
