I like what Mary has said against this Housing proposal. As a team of Councillors working together we have already been quick off the mark! We quickly announced the proposals a soon as we found out! That gave our residents a good day before the news started to arrive to others.
Of 257 people who responded to a survey on this housing announcement.
A 143 of you responded from Wednesfield North Ward. That is 56% of the Poll.
2 -95.7% said the Greenbelt was important.
That is 246 of those responding!
3- 91% or 236 people either living in Wednesfield or Essington didn’t think the proposals were a good development for Wednesfield or Essington.
60% of those surveyed believed that local people needed homes. But the info suggested that it should not be at the loss of this Greenbelt!
4 – 89% or 231 of the people responding to the survey agreed that the site being earmarked for housing is rich in Wildlife and Heritage. They agreed that the Housing Development should not take preference over this important Green Belt.
These are your 257 very strong sets of reasons to all the questions posed that you the public gave, and those responses from you will be used, to highlight your responses to these green Belt destruction proposals.
