Stop house building in Midlothian
We want housebuilding in Midlothian to end until our infrastructure has been improved and local services are modernised and fit for purpose.
Any time Midlothian council turn down housing, the building companies appeal to the Scottish government and they are given permission to press ahead with the construction of 1000’s of new houses.
Why is this important?
Our GP services are on their knees
Our roads are gridlocked due to sheer number of cars, limited roads out of Midlothian and poor public transport for many areas
Our schools are bursting at the seams with children being shipped out of catchment schools due to lack of space
Lack of investment into community resources - there are few services for our elderly, teenagers and young children.
Our green belt is disappearing - with a significant impact on our health and the environment
Private housing is not a priority - we need to prioritise council and housing association accommodation
