Debate - Sale of Farmland East of Browns Lane for Development

(a)  To be moved by Councillor R Simpson and seconded by Councillor J Gardiner


“This Council believes that the farmland east of Brown's Lane, owned by this Council and which has always been known as Coundon Wedge, should not be sold for development.”


(b)  To be moved by Councillor AS Khan and seconded by Councillor P Akhtar


“This Council believes that this Government is on a crash course to another period of austerity


Their policies yet again favour those that have and, as usual, ignore those that have not.


This winter the brunt of those fiscal policies will be borne not just by the most vulnerable, the old, the young and the disabled, but also by ordinary hard-working families. Record numbers of people using foodbanks and record numbers falling into fuel poverty. All this in a so-called advanced society.


This Council urges the Government to do the right thing and ensure that funding is targeted to those people and small businesses that need it and not to those companies and individuals that clearly do not”.
