UKIP's New Councillors Launch Housing Fight

news West Norfolk Borough Council 2

Published by the KLFM News Team at 7:26am 15th December 2014.

UKIP's Parliamentary Candidate for North West Norfolk at the 2015 General Election, has said the new UKIP group on the Borough Council will focus on stopping new housing.

Toby Coke made the comments to KLFM as five Borough Councillors defected to the party on Friday to form the third largest group on the council.

Mr Coke claims that the current plan for the Borough isn't sustainable:

“The infrastructure isn’t there to back it up, the jobs aren’t there, and you’ve got public services like schools and hospitals already at breaking point.

I think one of the things we’ve got to look very closely at is the local development frame work. The imposition of what’s being proposed with all this new housing. There’s a lot of local resistance to it.”
