"I wish to express my extreme
concern that the Westborough Allotment site still appears on
the Committee's agenda to be considered for Housing.
This flies in the face of public
opinion and I request that this site be immediately removed
from the agenda.
As you will be aware there was
an on-line petition on the Prime Minister's website earlier
this year saying NO to Housing on the Allotment Site - this
generated 550 signatures - GBC replied to 10 Downing
Street that the site was part of a forthcoming public
We have had that consultation -
the Site Allocations Consultation - which attracted over 260
formal replies saying keep the site as Allotments. This was
one of highest polling items in the Consultation exercise
and the result clearly reflects public support for keeping
the site for Allotment use only.
Local residents have had their
say and it is time GBC took notice of our wishes and
respected local democracy."
