Julian Smith MP sample letter

Julian Smith described the area as 'jaw-droppingly beautiful' to a journalist from a national newspaper who was featuring Sutton-in-Craven in an article about planning and the destruction of the countryside. Sadly, the article never made it to print.

We wrote to Julian Smith and he has been , he has taken it up for us and written to the Chief Executive of Craven District Council and the Planning Minister.
But I was disappointed to note in the Council's reply that Mr Smith had only received 8 letters of objection from his constituents...come one Suttoners don't give in,we'll be another 'Elsey Croft'.

Its infuriating to think that we have to write to Julian as well as object to the Planning Dept in order for the objections to carry any weight - I understood there were plenty of objections made to the application itself. I'll send Julian an email too.
