The Durham MP Roberta Blackman-Woods has told a planning meeting she opposes a development of new homes on a golf course in Durham."I'm here because I care passionately about the beautiful city I represent. This is not an appropriate development," she said.
She added she was in favour of creating jobs in Durham, but said the promised new jobs would be temporary, and the development would not attract new students to the city. She said councillors should protect the city's green space.
