Stanton to be discussed today

CAMPAIGNERS fighting for the protection of greenbelt around the proposed Stanton development are due to grill councillors tonight.

Green Squeeze members will ask the full council at a meeting tonight what powers are at its disposal to prevent the loss of green space.

The question reads: “Can the council confirm that it values our precious grenbelt?”

The group has voiced concerns in the past about access routes to the proposed 3,000-home village cutting through Erewash countryside.

They are also due to ask the authority what steps it will take to protect communities nearby: “Can the council assure resident that the Stanton redevelopment will not be allowed to adversely affect local communities?”

See next week’s paper out Thursday for the results.
