I’m backing plans for new affordable homes to be built, but only on appropriate sites across Northampton – and I’m insisting the Council ensures we have the new schools, GPs surgeries and transport links to cope – helping our next generation bring up families in affordable homes.
I have lived and worked in Northampton my whole life and I know that too often developers have tried to build without the necessary infrastructure improvements. I have opposed the development at Buckton Fields, for example, and have pressed that these plans would only go ahead if local concerns are resolved.
However, we must make sure that future generations can afford to live in Northampton so I will do my best to see that appropriate development of affordable homes can proceed.
Here are the links to some of the local development projects I have helped with over the last year:
