“We will not support any residential development in Cocks Crescent.”
Commenting, MICO Chair, James Giles, said: “We realise that this isn’t necessarily feasible with the current demands for new homes from central government, however to go from supporting zero homes to supporting up to 520 homes in the space of less than eight years really, in my opinion, is rather phenomenal – what has so massively changed to prompt this huge u-turn?
“The leaflet was attributed to the Conservative candidates of the day, Mary Clark and Mike Head – both of whom now serving Councillors. We know that Councillor Clark will be honouring her promise, and opposing overdevelopment, but the question now remains as to whether Councillor Head and the rest of the Conservative Group will.”
In light of this document, we’ve set up a special form for residents to e-mail Councillor Head, urging him to keep his personal promise to residents, and are urging residents to sign it below.
