A Victory for Eco-Sense?
Monday saw the publication of the independent Examination in Public (EiP) of the West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy, and Cotswolds MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown feels that the findings would make a decision by the Government to pursue the eco town at Long Martson “extraordinarily perverse”.
The MP feels that the report vindicates everything that he and his colleagues John Maples MP and Peter Luff MP have been saying ever since the Government produced this proposal.
Commenting today Mr Clifton-Brown said “As a chartered surveyor I was mindful of the fact that this development was unsustainable and would have led to more – not less – car usage.  This would have been totally contradictory to the Government’s raison d’être in the first place”
“Eco-towns do have their place, but it is on the edge of large conurbations.  The Long Marston eco-town is the wrong proposal in the wrong place”
