Cabinet Member Kwasi Kwateng MP Promised ‘Massive Reduction’ in Spelthorne Housing Target but in the end didn’t deliver

Surrey Live

Councillor Dick Smith-Ainsley (Independent Spelthorne Group, Laleham and Shepperton Green) told council that Spelthorne’s MP Kwasi Kwarteng had promised to get them a “massive reduction” in housing numbers. But Councillor Jon Button (Lab, Stanwell North) said: “Unfortunately he has missed a number of meetings on this issue, so has not been much help at all.”

Though the local plan has been described as ‘brutal’ by its own leader it protects 99.7% of Green Belt and only loses 24ha.
