Luton’s Labour Council has decided to spend £150,000 on consultants to tell them how to set up a Council owned company to build houses on Council owned land.
In recent years they have built on, or are currently building on, parks and open spaces at Manor Road; Roebuck Close, Farley Hill; Bradley Road/Thirlstone Road; Falconers Road; Abbotswood Road; Butely Road and Wigmore Lane.
Liberal Democrat leader Cllr. David Franks comments:
“Worryingly, our Labour Council’s record of building on parks and open spaces leads us to be seriously concerned about their intentions. It looks like Labour will not be happy until they have covered every blade of grass in Luton with concrete. Liberal Democrat Councillors will be keeping a very keen eye on Labour’s plans.”
