MP responds to Green Belt threat

Posted on March 29 2018 at 1:42:40

Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid has given his response to the Greater Birmingham Housing Market Area Strategic Growth Study, which proposes building thousands of homes on Green Belt land around Alvechurch and Barnt Green.

He told The Village: “The answer to solving the housing crisis does not lie in tearing up the Green Belt. It rightly benefits from strong protections, and the Government has no plans to change that.

“The GL Hearn review is an independent review that has nothing to do with Bromsgrove District Council.

“BDC has begun its own review on long-term housing needs and is committed to listening to local people – an approach I warmly welcome.”
