Henry Smith MP – Westminster Report – February 2021

Protecting our local community:

One issue I have continued to speak out on over the last couple of years are the proposals by Homes England to build some 10,000 housing units on green fields to the west of Ifield.

The voice of local residents is clear in opposition to these plans. This is the call I have continued to make in resident meetings, to Homes England, and in Parliament.

While no one can deny the need to build new homes in this country, such a task cannot be done by ignoring the concerns of local communities.
