MP Submits Bailey’s Field Petition

Jake Berry MP has submitted a petition signed by hundreds in an effort to stop a popular green spot from being over-developed.

 

The Protect Bailey’s Field petition, which was signed by 621 people, called on Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council to change its decision to earmark it as a development site for 500 houses.

 

Jake said:

 

“I’ve been overwhelmed by the support we received for the petition and thanks must go to all the local people who helped spread the word and made sure all their friends and neighbours knew about this ludicrous plan.

 

 

“Everyone knows it’s barmy to even think about building houses on Bailey’s Fields – there are plenty of other brownfield sites nearby that the council should be looking at first.”
