Luff Welcomes Eco-Town Setback

Peter Luff has welcomed unreservedly news of the successful application for a full judicial review of the Long Marston "eco-town" proposal.

The success of this application puts on hold the entire eco-town process, not just locally but nationally too.

Commenting, Peter said,

"The eco-town proposed for Worcestershire and Warwickshire is totally inappropriate. We need more houses and more affordable houses, but not in an inaccessible location. Any new town, if built, would be an environmental catastrophe, a white elephant or a future slum - or some combination of the three. Today's news is a blow for common sense that I welcome unreservedly."
