I cannot believe the Inspector has given approval for East Herts Local Plan and I am furious. In effect it only gives outline planning permission to Gresley Park, so full detailed planning permission is still required, which local people can oppose when the developers apply. I understand current plans are for 600 houses, up from 400 and 3 sets of traffic lights on Gresley Way.

I am working alongside local Parish Councils and community groups, such as the Campaign to Protect Local Communities around Aston (PACE), to ask the Secretary of State to call-in the Local Plan. I accept that over 97% of the houses planned are not in my area, but we firmly believe the Local Plan is flawed. I published my objections during the Inquiry here.

I have led the campaign for the Local Authorities in this area to work together and deliver a new Garden City to provide the much needed infrastructure as well as housing, and I have discussed this again with Ministers recently.

They must work together to try and resolve our housing need once and for all.
