Critics of the ideas outlined in the new Local Plan should put up or shut up, says council leader John Gilbey.
Last week’s publication of draft proposals for the district up to 2031 attracted objections over plans for new homes and radical plans for new roads to ease traffic congestion. Cllr Gilbey said:
“We are trying to improve the district, to make things better, and I don’t have any problem with people criticizing what is proposed, but they have got to be able to suggest alternatives. It’s no good just engaging in childish name-calling. That is not going to get their voices heard; it’s not going to influence anything.”
