Mark backs the building of new homes for local families, but only if it’s matched by more infrastructure and local services.
Our children need somewhere they can afford to live, but that doesn’t mean destroying our quality of life. That’s why Mark has lobbied for two more primary and one new secondary school on the Bishop’s Stortford North development.
Mark believes any development must be sustainable. That is why he continues to oppose the so-called ‘Harlow North’ development. It is completely unsustainable both environmentally and in terms of providing infrastructure. Green Belt land must be properly protected.
Mark backs the early adoption of the East Herts Local Plan, so that future development is truly sustainable and subject to local accountability.
