Bradford Local Plan Called in on Green Belt Grounds

Bradford Conservatives

What a stupid idea to grant this centralising power


Bradford Council’s Conservative group welcomes the decision of the Housing & Planning Minister to stop the adoption and implementation of Bradford’s Local Plan Core Strategy. Councillor Martin Smith, spokesman on planning for the group said:

“The Conservative Group has campaigned throughout this process for a plan that actually reflects the housing needs of Bradford rather than the preferences of developers. Thanks to Philip Davies MP we have a stay of execution while Ministers look at the proposals. We’ll be arguing again that priority has to be given to the development of brownfield sites in what the local plan calls Bradford’s ‘inner urban’ areas. As the plan stands today we’ll see the further decline of Bradford’s suburbs while developers build thousands of houses to meet demand for executive homes from Leeds and North Yorkshire.”
