LOCAL action groups and residents fighting to preserve the nation’s greenbelt are set to meet at Biggin Hill next week.

The Green Party’s baroness Jenny Jones has agreed to talk at the event, where she’s set to voice her concerns about developments in areas some feel should be left alone.

The London Assembly member’s due to cover controversial subjects such as fracking, government planning framework, and the London Plan.

Representatives from residents associations, Friends of the Earth, Aperfield Green Belt Action Group and the Green Belt Protection Alliance, among others, are also going to get involved.

The meeting’s planned for Wednesday March 5 at 6pm, at the Squash Club on Jail Lane and organisers are inviting the public along.

And we're off. I said it would not be long before we start to lose our green pastures, the Garden of England!!!!
The government cant wait to get it's filthy hands on the land so that it can build more bl00dy eyesores in the name of progress and housing for even more of the immigrants that seemed to have escaped their notice on entering this country legal or illegal. I hope the parties involved are able to put up a real good fight to say NO. to destroying this area and mean it. Don't let them take away what beautiful countryside we have left.

So no mention of any specific 'developments' then? Just typical Green scaremongering. Anyone would think there were elections coming up.
