MP to host meeting

BROXTOWE MP Anna Soubry and local councillors are holding a public meeting in Toton as part of the campaign to protect the area’s green belt.

The meeting will take place on Saturday September 24 from 2pm to 4pm at Toton Greenwood Community Centre.

The MP said: “Fields off Stapleford Lane and opposite Bardills have been identified by Broxtowe Borough Council as suitable for development even though they are in the green belt. The plans would see hundreds of houses built on the fields.

“We are the most densely populated borough and our green belt is especially important providing open green spaces, preventing urban sprawl and keeping the identity of communities like Toton and Stapleford.

“There is enough brown field land for 2,000 homes. They are handing over green belt when they don’t have to.”
