Gavin presents Upper Landywood Lane petition to District Council

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, presented his petition opposing planning proposals on land off Upper Landywood Lane to the District Council.

Gavin presented the petition with a total of almost 1,500 signatures to the District Council which will be sent to the Planning Inspectorate early this week.

The petition is against the proposals which seek to build 100 houses on the land off Upper Landywood Lane. Similar proposals in Landywood were rejected in 2013 and 2015 on a plot of land on Landywood Lane.

Residents from across Cheslyn Hay and Great Wyrley are united once again in this campaign, helping to organise and distribute petitions which were hand delivered to homes across the area.

After submitting the petition Gavin said: “I have been contacted by around 1,500 residents who are completely against these proposals to build around 100 houses on land off Upper Landywood Lane.

“Action has to be taken so that these proposals are thrown out I have campaigned hard with local residents on similar proposals twice before and I will be opposing these ridiculous plans once again. It is vital that we are dedicated in the battle to preserve our green belt land and the distinct identity of our individual villages.”
