Greed drives plans for es­tate houses

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I READ with dis­may that the Hall Barn Trust wants to build houses and yet another of­fice in Bea­cons­field Old Town.

I sin­cerely hope that per­mis­sion is not granted.

The Old Town can­not cope with the cars al­ready in London End and it shows what lit­tle the es­tate knows when it states there is plenty of park­ing.

If Hall Barn Es­tate wants to build more houses, let it use its own land.

If Lord Burn­ham or his fa­ther came back, they would be hor­ri­fied at what has hap­pened to the town they loved.

It is just greed – I fear for the round­about, I bet they would build on that if they could.

I hope this plan gets thrown out, but I’m not liv­ing in hope.

We be­lieve in fairer wages and a sus­tain­able, in­de­pen­dent, lo­cal econ­omy. That means a liv­ing wage, af­ford­able hous­ing that’s ac­tu­ally af­ford­able, in­vest­ment in clean and re­new­able en­ergy, no HS2 and no to the pri­vati­sa­tion of our NHS.

If you think th­ese are sen­si­ble poli­cies, join the green surge to­day.
