Venue: Radcliffe Market, 11 Blackburn St, Radcliffe, Bury, M26 1NN
Below some important points from our meeting on the 23rd Jan 2019.
MP Ivan Lewis: Are RS and JD prepared to challenge the government’s figures? Why are we not using the 2016 figures so that we don’t have to use greenbelt land to accommodate the figures?
Cllr. James Daly: Let’s challenge the figures and say we’re not accepting this; this is not acceptable for the people in Bury. Let’s pull together a plan to tell the government we’re putting together a plan based on 2016 figures so that we don’t have to build on greenbelt.
Cllr. Rishi Shori: I’m meeting with the Housing Minister on 12th February to discuss these figures. Quote: “We would prefer to use the 2016 figures because that would mean no loss of greenbelt in GM”. “Absolutely we will challenge these figures”.
FOBF Chair Chris Russell: recalled a previous meeting where it was said that the figures would be challenged. “But I believe that you’re telling us now that you’re going to pull together collectively, this is your chance.”
