Pennwood Cornfields: Lib Dems oppose development and urge plans axed

Commenting on plans to develop Penwood, or well known in Wolverhampton as 'The Cornfields', resident and Liberal Democrat campaigner Nick Machnik-Foster said:

"We cannot allow the Green Belt to be concreted over like this. Wolverhampton Liberal Democrats strongly oppose these plans and will strain every sinew to stop them.

"These plans will lead to the destruction of a beautiful area and cause chaos to the neighbourhood's infrastructure. Our roads cannot cope as it is.

"The plans were cooked up behind closed doors and no one knew anything about it. There is total anger in the community. This area means a lot - to so many people - people have happy memories of walking and playing in this area and that is all now at risk.

"We cannot let our Green Belt become a concrete jungle. The area is one of the green lungs of this part of Wolverhampton and the local councils seem desperate to take it away."
