Anna Soubry MP calls for Green Belt Inquiry to re-open

Anna Soubry MP has today asked for the Public Inquiry into plans to build thousands of homes on Green Belt land to be re-opened.

Speaking after writing to the Planning Inspector, Anna said, “I have asked the Inspector to re-open the inquiry. People and campaign groups from Toton should be given the opportunity to give evidence about the future of their Green Belt land. I have already provided written and oral evidence against housing development at Toton and about the lack of public consultation by Broxtowe Borough Council. I have consistently argued against housing development on Toton’s Green Belt and have told the Inspector that the people who live there do not want their green fields destroyed by housing development.  Broxtowe has rolled over again and given into the developers – it is time there was proper inquiry into the Toton land.”
