I AM writing to express concern about the behaviour of our planning department. They appear to be claiming that I and my neighbours have been consulted about the industrial and housing developments planned for Winyates Green.

I ATTENDED the Redditch Borough Council meeting where councillors approved local plan number four – which sets out where building should take place in Redditch until 2030 – on September 10. During the meeting I was most surprised to hear Tory councillor after Tory councillor speak out against this plan. A plan that has been in preparation since 2006. A period of time that includes four years when Redditch Council was under Conservative control.

OVER the last few years, the residents of Webheath have repeatedly raised concerns and faults with the local plan to build 3,400 houses in the area of Webheath and Foxlydiate. So compelling were the arguments against the plan that the council has already rejected last year’s Taylor Wimpey’s plans for 200 houses on the ADR.
