MP Gagan Mohindra raised constituents’ concerns over the Chorleywood Green Street planning proposal with the Prime Minister.
Many locals have protested Chiltern Hills Golf Club’s planning proposal to build 800 homes on Green Belt, though the club has agreed to lower it to 300 if needed.
Gagan Mohindra MP spoke about the issue with PM Boris Johnson on July 22, to which he replied saying people should prioritise building on Brownfield land.
Speaking to ChorleywoodNews, the MP said: “I appreciate constituents’ concerns about this development, and the potential impact on local residents.
“Not only would the development risk damaging our precious natural environment, I understand the additional housing could increase Chorleywood’s population by 30 per cent without providing infrastructure that would be needed to support these extra people.
“With that in mind, I have written to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to take these concerns directly to the government and am awaiting a response.”
