How many houses?
The Local Conservatives have recently been complaining about the number of houses being proposed, in the local plan, on some of the sites including Lea Castle Village and Naylors Field. It is very difficult to understand on what basis they could possibly complain about these sites being in the plan, given that these sites appeared in their Local Plan. If the Progressive Alliance tried to amend these issues, the local plan process would have to be re-started, which could take years. If a District Council does not have a local plan in place, it could be vulnerable to allowing property developers to build developments the local community would not want. Consequently, the Progressive Alliance Council has decided that we would go ahead with the number of houses proposed in the original Conservative local plan. The only way to get sites removed for the local plan now is through the local planning inspector, as only he can remove sites at this late stage.

From point 29 onwards it shows you all the areas they proposed to build on.
Below the images of the number of houses the conservatives planned to be built, is the full list of amendments the Progressive Alliance had to make to the original Conservative Local Plan- including having to add a car park in Blakedown to meet the requirements of the Local Transport Policy set by the county council. And the removal of some green belt land. This can all be found on https://wyreforestdc-consult.objective.co.uk/portal/presub2019/alpps?pointId=5440871
