Liberal Democrats Call for End to Building on Parks

“The Labour Council has built on too much of Luton’s green open space it’s time to call a halt. It looks like they will not be happy until they have covered every blade of grass in Luton with concrete.” – Liberal Democrat leader Cllr. David Franks.

Following the Labour Council granting planning permissions for a supermarket on the Brache bowling green in Gypsy Lane and for an access road to a second airport terminal on Wigmore Valley Park, Liberal Democrat councillors are calling for an end to building on Luton’s parks and green open spaces.

The supermarket was approved against Planning Officer advice and the Wigmore Valley Park development was approved in the face of vigorous objection from residents.

“The Wigmore plan involves concreting over one of the biggest, busiest and most attractive parks in town” says Liberal Democrat Cllr. David Franks.

“Labour Councillors tell us children need somewhere to live, but children also need somewhere to play. A congested town like Luton needs its parks and green spaces.”

“The Labour Council has built on too much of Luton’s green open space it’s time to call a halt. It looks like they will not be happy until they have covered every blade of grass in Luton with concrete.”

The Council is currently consulting residents about their plan to build new homes on Wandon Park in Stopsley.
