READER LETTER: Local Plan - Have a say in consultation

editorial image

I wanted to write and highlight to local residents, especially those on the Vaughan Estate, a Local Plan consultation that is currently open from Gedling Borough Council.

Whilst obviously we live in Ashfield, this Gedling consultation concerns 420 houses adjacent to Papplewick Lane and Hayden Lane and will have a huge impact on residents in and around that area. I personally will be making my views clear, that it is unacceptable for Gedling to ignore the previous advice of the Planning Inspectors by adding an additional 120 homes on top of the 300 already allocated there.

I would urge as many residents as possible to do the same. Anyone can see the specifics of these additional homes, on the site know as ‘Hayden Lane’, on the Gedling Borough website in Appendix C, and you can also find links to it on both mine and Mark Spencer MP’s Facebook pages.

Please do have a say, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need more information.
