Nimbys of the week, lead by Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson.

Residents protest at plans for new homes near Gunthorpe estate

Protester Ian Crutchfield, of Beadle Way, said: “The issue is nothing to do with the fact that the plans are for social housing - we’re not protesting against that “We’re just disappointed that nobody has asked for our views, we only found out about this development by accident, it’s not really good enough. Mr Crutchfield added: “The other issue we have is that there simply aren’t the facilities in the area to support a development this large. We don’t have shops, bus services or schools nearby, there simply isn’t the infrastructure.” Stewart Jackson, MP, said: “These people are angry and their concerns are understandable. I will be attending the planning meeting.”
