Stapleford MP Anna Soubry joined campaigners fighting to save Field Farm by letting people know about a public meeting being held later this month.

Ms Soubry will be speaking at 2pm on Saturday November 10 at the Jaguar pub meeting organised by campaign group STRAG to help boost the fight against the proposal to build 450 homes on the green belt site.

She told the Advertiser: “I delivered leaflets in the part of Trowell which touches Field Farm. Like people in Stapleford they face losing a vast open green space to 450 houses.

“The land perfectly matches the aim of green belt to stop urban sprawl and safeguard the identity of communities.

“We have enough brown field land in the borough for over three thousand new homes. That meets our housing needs and safeguards what little green belt we have left.”
