We have a population crisis

The more houses you build, the more you will have to build. We do not have a housing problem – we have a population crisis.

The current population of the country is 77 million. The area of the country is 60 million acres (including land under buildings and roads, lakes mountains etc).

The country is full up. Lincolnshire is a one party state. The Conservatives are only interested in making short term profits dressed up as socially responsible.

It is criminally wasteful to build on high grade farmland; 60 per cent of the whole country’s green groceries come from the Fens. For every house built there will be at least two extra cars on Lincolnshire roads.

How many children in school? How many patients in hospital?

There is no such thing as sustainable development – there is no one making more land!

The planners will not be happy until the whole country is covered in concrete.
