I’VE seen and heard lots of people arguing against the use of green belt for housing in Eccleston and, after reading a newsletter put out by our local Lib Dem councillors, I decided to examine some of the facts behind the claims.

I was particularly interested in the claim that our existing doctors and dentists were already oversubscribed, as this was not my impression.

I have since noticed a local doctors and dentists surgery advertising for new patients, so I have kindly updated one of the councillors.

I hope they take the opportunity to update the electorate.
