Environment is important

I note with interest that Barratts has withdrawn its application to build in new Hartley.

However, I also note it is to continue talks with the council with a view to submitting a further scheme at a later date.

To the residents I say, watch this space, the battle may have been won, but not the war.

It seems the main political parties are obsessed with house building schemes, but they never mention the environment. Do they have a policy regarding preservation of the environment, in other words, an alternative and balanced view?
