Subject: Save Gainsborough Country




Following up our conversation yesterday and ahead of the public meeting tomorrow I would be grateful if you would convey to the meeting my unequivocal support for the campaign that Save Gainsborough Country Action Group is launching.


I entirely share the concerns that have been raised about the proposal to develop 170 homes on open fields in the Stour Valley. Babergh District Council's previous policy which confirmed the Great Cornard Special Landscape Area in 2001 and confirmed this in 2003 was correct. It is wrong  for an inspector from outside the area to overturn this policy to suit the interests of developers and against the clearly expressed views of Great Cornard Parish Council.


I will be happy to assist the campaign in any way that you believe would be helpful.
