06/01/14 - Parliamentary group seeks view on greenbelt protectio


Have your say on how greenbelt land can be protected and preserved for the future.


West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper is encouraging local groups to make their voices heard as the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Greenbelt, a group of Parliamentarians, campaign groups and environmental experts, launches a new enquiry.


The group is calling for evidence and ideas as part of its investigation into greenbelt protection. Following the written submissions the group will be holding oral evidence sessions in the new year with a report expected in Spring 2014.


Encouraging West Lancashire residents and campaign groups to contribute to the investigation, MP Rosie said:


"During the Local Plan process future development on greenbelt land proved to be very contentious.  Many residents and campaign groups remain unsatisfied with the process and the outcome.


"This enquiry is an opportunity for people to have their say on this important debate and offer their ideas on how greenbelt land can be protected.  From this recent experience no doubt there are people in West Lancashire who have ideas and suggestions that would help inform the work of the All Party Parliamentary Group.


"If you are interested in making a submission then please contact my office for further information."


The deadline for submission is 31st January 2014.
