More concerns have been raised about Isle of Wight development plans at the latest Island Plan meeting with MP Bob Seely.

Around 60 residents gathered in Northwood Village Hall on Saturday.

Earmarked for greenfield sites, houses would be built over 15 years along with over 9,000 other properties planned across the Island. A further 813 homes are planned for Cowes.

Bob said:

“It was good to meet with the residents of Northwood and hear their concerns about the Island Plan.

“These houses will take away more of our beautiful green landscape and the majority of them are not suitable for Islanders.

“The legitimate concerns of the Northwood community will be echoed by similar communities all over the Island if the Island Plan is approved in its current form.”

Further meetings will take place in East Cowes, Ryde, Nettlestone and Seaview and Wroxall and Mr Seely say he welcomes invitations from other Island towns and villages.
