Rabley Wood View: how did our MP help residents?

 

Sirs,

I was surprised to learn that the Conservative MP in a neighbouring constituency - James Gray (MP for Malmesbury) - has come out very fiercely against plans for a new road & housing scheme in Chippenham.

Wiltshire Council are proposing 7,500 more houses by 2043 and a new link road round the east of the town.  

Mr Gray is 'horrified' that Wiltshire are applying for £75 million of central government funding under a scheme that requires what is called 'full public support'.  He says there has been no public consultation at all.

Could you please check whether our MP has been helping residents who live near the Rabley Wood View housing development on their amenity land.  They are people whose rights have been trodden under foot by Wiltshire Council.

Surely she should have supported them when legal guarantees that the amenity land should remain as a public open space in perpetuity, were treated with contempt and overturned.

Wiltshire needs more housing - especially affordable housing - but that end does not justify any old means - especially such outrageous behaviour.

I note that Mrs Perry's website says that she will only act for constituents on matters that concern central government - which, she says, excludes local planning.  But of course these houses on amenity land near Rabley Wood View only got the go ahead from a government planning inspector - having been rejected by Wiltshire's own planning councillors.  

That makes this disputed planning decision okay for Mrs Perry's attention.

 

Yours,


Marlborough Area Resident
