Subject: Re: Letter – HIF1 Insfrastructure Project Planning Application (Case Ref: DJ40365)
Dear Mr Brown,
Thank you for your letter.
I very much agree with the sentiment in your letter and you will have seen my comments to the local paper here. While I supported the case Appleford made for adjusting the position of the road, the overall project remains needed given the housing and road congestion we are already experiencing.
As you say, the decision has been called in by the Government. I have no role in the planning process, but I will continue to represent my constituents on this.
Thanks again for taking the time to write to me.
