Housing (Kettering)

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

Before I read out the petition, I want to pay a huge tribute to Mr. John and Mrs. Pat Brunige of 4 Warkton village, Kettering, who have laboured night and day to collect the signatures in association with the petition.

The petition states:

To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled

The humble petition of:

Mr. John Brunige and others of like disposition listed below, which in total number 5,359


That new housing development proposed for Kettering and its surrounding area will only be sustainable and of general benefit for the whole area if the necessary additional infrastructure to support the new population is put in place ahead of or in parallel with new housing construction

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House shall urge the Department of Communities and Local Government to consider the plight of Mr. Brunige and the other Petitioners and either bring forward firm plans to provide the necessary infrastructure or stop the housing expansion plans.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray etc.

To lie upon the Table.
