Protecting our greenbelt

Across Thornton, Cleveleys, Carleton and Blackpool we've seen many new housing developments in recent years.

That means more cars on our roads, more pressure on GP services and school places and increased challenges preventing flooding across our local communities.

I will campaign hard against any new schemes which threaten our greenbelt and the unique identity of our local communities.

Sensible, sustainable development is one thing, but we can't afford to see more of our countryside lost.
