Planning (Bedfordshire)

Volume 470: debated on Wednesday 23 January 2008

I am presenting this petition on behalf of the residents of Aspley Guise village in my constituency.

The petition declares:

That the South East Region is seeking to take over planning authority for Aspley Guise, which is part of Mid Bedfordshire.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to protect their democratic rights for the future of their village to be planned through the proper process of the East of England Plan and not dictated by a neighbouring Region, the South East; and further urges the Secretary of State to instruct the Government Office for the South East to remove any proposed housing numbers for Aspley Guise in any future revision of the South East Plan and to make arrangements for a future review of the East of England Plan to include consideration of any new housing development in Aspley Guise.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
