Eastern Area Plan

The Green Party’s excellent response to the hotly debated eastern area plan. To be ratified at the Ramsey meeting tomorrow night at the Mitre at 7 pm. In a nutshell, It is summarised as follows:-

  1. The government’s population predictions are wrong
  2. Therefore, the proposal to build 5,100 houses is without merit.
  3. We have a climate emergency.
  4. Building on green field sites will release carbon / remove carbon sequestration
  5. New Builds will release c.50 tonnes of carbon dioxide in construction and take c.50 years to reach parity with retrofitting a building
  6. We must wait until the next census in 2021 to understand our housing needs before zoning green field sites.
