I am opposing Warwick District Council’s proposals to sell off their Riverside House site for exclusive use of private housing and build new offices on part of the Covent Garden site in Leamington alongside a new multi-storey car park. As a result, there will be no car parking available on the Covent Garden Car Park for at least 20 months.
The complete absence of affordable housing in their plans is scandalous. The cost of the project in a time of austerity makes it totally unjustifiable. 800 people rely on Covent Garden Car Park per day. Half of those who use it do so to shop in Leamington Town Centre, while up to 35% of shoppers are from Coventry. The loss of 800 people a day not coming to Leamington will seriously undermine the viability of many Leamington Town Centre businesses.

You can watch my speech from the social housing debate I brought to the House of Commons below.Homelessness is now at 277,000, and we have 1.1m people on housing waiting lists, whilst rough sleeping has risen by 165% since 2010. The government could and should deliver 3.1m social homes over the next twenty years. It's an explicit target of 155,000 social rented homes a year, and it's critical that we focus minds on delivering that. This is what my motion today sought to confirm.The government did not oppose my motion - so I hope they understand the absolute necessity of hitting this target. ... See MoreSee Less
From rising homelessness to the lack of affordable social rented homes, it's clear that we need a bold, long-term plan to fix the housing crisis - and that is why I have brought a debate on social housing to the Commons this afternoon. ... See MoreSee Less
