The future of Stratford District is at risk!
The repeated delays by the Conservative run District Council in getting an agreed local plan mean that we currently have little chance of challenging inappropriate developments.
Developers are preying on our district with housing that is not for the good of the local area but the most profitable for them.
Not only are we losing over a million pounds of taxpayers money on fighting appeals, but we are losing out on needed investment in local services such as healthcare.
Liberal Democrats believe that local people should decide on the future shape of their community and the best way to do this is through strong Neighbourhood Plans.
Our area does need suitable affordable housing where we can give our children a chance to stay in their home towns and get on the housing ladder. Letting local people have a bigger say over what new housing should go where is the best way to get this.
