Amsterdam Eco Town
Posted Tuesday, 23 September 2008 at 12:28

Local councillor Mike Gibson has been to Amsterdam to take a look at an eco town.


This is what he has to say:


I came back from Amsterdam convinced that the only time that we can properly challenge is now. We must redouble our efforts to convince those that have the power to make the decision, that under any criteria they could apply, Marston Vale is not the place for a new “eco” town.”


“I am absolutely horrified; what is currently being proposed is a trick of smoke and mirrors, and I urge all residents to make their voices heard against the so-called eco-town.”


 “My fact-finding trip to Amsterdam only confirmed and strengthened my initial worries that what constitutes a real eco-town bears no resemblance to what is being proposed in the Marston Vale.”


“To build on a beautiful greenfield area and to cite it as sustainable, ecological and a benefit to the local residents is a nonsense, and I will do everything in my power to stop it from happening.”
