Stratford-upon-Avon MP Nadhim Zahawi has criticised plans to build 800 homes on green field land on the edge of the town near the cottage of Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare.
During a parliamentary debate last night (8 November), Mr Zawahi said residents had been repeatedly let down by planning decisions while the Government insisted it was committed to giving them a greater say on planning issues.
Residents oppose the development, which will be linked which will be linked to the town by a road running outside the back of Hathaway's thatched farmhouse.
Despite their opposition, the residents were over-ruled after the area was designated for housing.
Planning Minister Nick Boles said England had a "chronic and severe" housing shortage and the Government would be failing the next generation of hard working people if more homes were not built for them.
