Yesterday I proposed a new law to Parliament that would put extra checks and balances in place for Council housing developments like One Horton Heath. It simply cannot be right for Councils to award themselves planning permission, build out new houses and then keep the profits.
We really need some independent scrutiny and transparency in this process, not local authorities like Eastleigh Borough Council marking their own homework.
That's exactly what my proposed Bill would do. The video is a quick summary of what I proposed. You can see my full speech and more details about this proposed new law at this link.
