We need new homes in our community so kids growing up here can afford to live here into adulthood if that’s what they want. But we also need to protect our green spaces because they are so precious. Once they’re gone they’re gone forever.
That’s why I joined Hangleton residents this afternoon to show my support for Bendield Valley remaining a small green spot for families to enjoy. The fact that so many amazing dogs were in attendance shows how important this kind of space is, especially for pet owners.
I’ve been your MP long enough for you to know that I don’t oppose development often. In fact just yesterday I visited the Hove Gardens construction site by Hove station. But we need balanced development that keeps the local character intact as communities evolve over time.
Huge thanks to wonderful campaign organisers Helen and Carly. This is a campaign that adds up to more than the sum of its parts and I was proud to be a part of it today.
