"Consult the professionals, choose the Flyer"
Dr Therese Coffey MP
It has been a busy few weeks since Parliament returned and although when it is sitting I spend 4 days a week in Westminster, I have been con- centrating on the key issues that affect Woodbridge and its surrounds.
One of these issues is the new National Planning Policy put forward by the Government. It is clear that planning policies
need to change. At the moment planning guidance totals 1,000 pages. The Government wants to reduce that to just 52 and by doing that are com- mitted to decentralising power to local people and making the planning process more accessible.
I think some clarification is needed over the propos- als but I support the general thrust of the national principles to allow more local input through our councils and parish plans.
It is important we protect our Green Belts, safeguard our countryside from encroachment and check the unrestricted sprawl of large built-up areas. The new planning policy addresses these points and states that local plans should minimise adverse effects on the natural environment. The consultation on the new framework has recently closed and the Government will now be looking at comments made to see if anything else can be added to make the policy more robust.
I think there are further ideas which could be included like the use of bonds that developers will have to pay from the outset to ensure community works are finished regardless of the situation that the developer finds himself in. This may have
helped with the issue in Rendlesham, although I know the Parish Council is taking positive steps to address that.
I recently joined a delegation of children from local primary schools, including Kyson, Martlesham Beacon Hill and Waldringfield County at the Tesco Extra store to make a presentation as part of the stores schools and clubs equipment scheme. Vouchers gained at the Tesco store can be swapped for equipment ranging from play equipment to Sports equipment including hurdles. Very apt with less than a year to go until London 2012.
On a lighter note I entered my 12 year old rescue dog, Rizzo, into the Westminster Dog of the Year show earlier this month. Whilst narrowly missing out on a top 3 place it was an opportunity to raise awareness of the work of responsible pet owner- ship.
The most intriguing question from the judges was 'what celebrity does Rizzo most resemble?' to which I replied Sir Bruce Forsyth - as although she is reaching her older years she is still nimble on her feet, an entertainer and a bit of a charmer.
