I have launched a campaign to put jobs first by defending employment land from the voracious apetite of house-builders. Everyone in Taunton will be aware of business premises that have bulldozed or converted to make way for residential developments. While we do have a housing shortage, we aren’t going to build our way out of that by taking up valuable employment land. We need to bite the bullet and look at greenfield sites around the town for new residential, preserving employment land to help us climb out of recession. See here for the press release.
