Laurence Robertson MP continues to support Save the Countryside team in their campaign to protect Greenbelt land around Cheltenham.

Laurence Robertson, MP had a busy day visiting rallies around the area, meeting concerned residents about the threat to the Green Belt, in their areas, posed by the house building numbers in the Joint Core Strategy.

Mr Robertson, visited Uckington to meet residents of Uckington and Swindon Village who added their opposition to the proposal to build 4,850  homes in their fields.

Helen Wells from Save the Countryside said “ We are delighted to continue to receive such  good support from our MPS in Tewkesbury and Cheltenham on such an important issue. The Joint Core Strategy team tell the public that we need to build on greenbelt, but we have evidence and fair  alternative suggestions to prove that this is simply not the case. We want the public to know this and to have their say in the future of our town as this affects everyone.”

Residents within the Joint Core Strategy area of Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Gloucester have  5 days left to make their comments known to the draft proposals. Responses are due to the JCS team by 13th December. More details can be found on the JCS website
