Green leaflet for Bridge

My neighbours in Malling and I have received a ‘Thank you’ newsletter from Chelsea Renton, the newly elected Green town councillor for Bridge Ward. Chelsea as founder of Lewes Phoenix Rising did her best to prevent the large brownfield site at North Street being regenerated with 416 homes (165 of them 'affordable'). Chelsea and LPR in a press release, vigorously rebutted by the Council, now seem to be having another go at extracting the site which has been more or less derelict since the flood in 2000. Meanwhile, she is promoting the development of the green field site on Old Malling Farm.
So is Green policy now ‘Greenfield YES, Brownfield NO’? The Green leaflet seems to suggest this.The Greens didn’t lift a finger when OMF was proposed for the Local Plan by the Government Inspector. Perhaps Chelsea and fellow Green Bridge councillor Jo Carter, a very rare bird occasionally found in Malling during the voting season, should sometime try talking to constituents?

@Sashimi Your post is an intentional misrepresentation of LPR (which I have nothing to do with). LPR are not against the redevelopment of North Street just the particular vision of the current plan. They sought more desperately needed affordable housing and a desire to preserve some of the industrial heritage of the area.

If Sashimi is John Stockdale, who I think has used this name on this forum before, he lives next to Old Malling Farm so of course doesn't want it.

The Liberals used to tour the the streets with loudspeaker vans, or in open-top buses, thanking the entire population for voting for them wherever the won a seat. Fortunately, they are now an obsolescent party in terminal decline.
From a green point of view I think that the NSQ should be developed first for low-cost housing; with an extended sprawl into the countryside as a future option. But why should future housing to cater for our expanding population be built in the south-east?
A TV program yesterday featured houses in the north being sold for £1. They need refurbishment, obviously; but why not allow the homeless and unemployed to relocate, rebuild and create a community- which will ultimately create jobs?
