Michael Gove MP Guest Speaker At Local Dinner

Last Friday night Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities was the guest Speaker at Lewes Constituency Conservatives Premier Dinner held at the East Sussex National Hotel. A number of Wealden residents also attended including Lawson Commercial partners, Chris and Julia Lawson.

Mr Gove was left in no doubt that those attending were not against House building but thought that government figures for housing targets were wrong in being too high. It was stressed that we did not want Sussex concreted over by bullying house developers. He took a lot of questions and Chris had a brief chat with him making the point that planning applications took too long to be processed & that we also need more business space to provide jobs for all those new residents.


It was a very good evening, well attended, hosted by Lewes MP Marie Caulfield and there was a silent auction & raffle to raise funds.
