The fight to stop a planning application for 170 homes in Maids Moreton

Tag: National Protest Walk

February 2022: Soggy and successful protest walk in Maids Moreton !

Maids Moreton was never going to be put off by heavy rain and 18 mph winds…!

At 12pm today, over 100 villagers gathered with banners, wellies and brollies to walk the public footpath across the site of the proposed 170 homes. Local MP Greg Smith and ward councillor Warren Whyte also joined to show their support. Mr. Smith followed up by Tweeting a strong message to Buckinghamshire Council:

“Despite the rain, wonderful to join so many on the protest walk in Maids Moreton earlier. New homes should only be built on brownfield sites, with our beautiful Bucks countryside protected. The current planning consent in Maids Moreton is totally wrong and must be called in”

Cllr. Warren Whyte also backed Greg Smith’s calls for the application to be reconsidered:

“Despite the awful weather, it’s an amazing turn out for the Maids Moreton and Foscote Action Group protest walk, inc our MP @gregsmith_uk today.

@BucksCouncil still has time to respect local views and also to respect the councillor call in. #brownfield first. @GarethWatBucks
