Peterborough MP opposes the latest wild idea to sell Peterborough land.

Leave a comment

Read the article about the latest ill conceived plan to sell land to Kensington for social housing.  At a time when there are nearly 10,000 families on the housing waiting list in Peterborough.  Our schools are at maximum capacity and over £1 million a week is used just to keep our hospital open.

Oh and does anyone remember Cereste’s promise that he would save us £100’s on our energy Bills.

Read the comments on this article – it seems as if most people are being offered Bills at a higher tariff than they are already on.

Read PCCs own page and you will see that the electricity is not being offered by Solar Farms as Cereste claimed – instead it is being offered by Scottish Power – who are known for being one of the most expensive electricity providers.  Read here

The bottom line is that we are being fed confusing information to muddy the water – we already know that Cereste is muddying the water by talking about £110 million profit from the Energy Farms – (£90 million of this profit is from wind which is not even in planning yet)  The real figure is c.20 million profit from 25 years.  Is this worth putting the council in debt of £61 million next year.  A big risk for a little gain.

All the while nurseries are being shut, meals on wheels closed and care homes emptied.

Help us to stop this poorly thought out plan.
