Louise calls for immediate withdrawal of housing appeal on Low Lane

Louise_Blog_Image.pngWith the news that the Secretary of State has stopped the building of 550 houses on Little Maltby Farm, close to Ingleby Barwick, while the Developer considers the option of a Judicial Review, I am calling on the land owner of the neighbouring field to withdraw his own appeal to build a further 550.

It costs the council – and that means taxpayers – thousands of pounds to hire barristers to fight appeals. Money that could be spent on vital public services, And it costs residents and their representatives time and money to attend a public enquiry every day and make sure their concerns are heard.

We are due to begin in three weeks time yet there is so much uncertainty. The land owner and developers should withdraw their appeal, save themselves and the council money and give local people some respite from this long battle to save our green wedge.
