“Labour recognises the value of open green space and continues to enhance and protect the green lungs of Exeter.” Cllr Phil Bialyk - Leader of Exeter City Council
The new Labour leader of Exeter City Council, Cllr Phil Bialyk has announced he is reviewing the decision to sell the green space behind Clifton Hill Sports centre for housing.
Cllr Phil Bialyk, leader of Exeter City Council said:
“Since this new Labour administration was elected in May, and since I became leader of Exeter City Council earlier this year, I have been reviewing decisions made about green space in Exeter. Labour is listening to the public on a range of issues. I have considered the sale and development of the Clifton Hill site very carefully and I would like to keep this space, without the redevelopment of the golf range and the ski slope, and to save the recognised open green space.”
This announcement comes following the news that Labour-led Exeter City council would not be selling a small part of the land at Bull Meadow, and not selling Northbrook green space for development.
Cllr Bialyk continued:
“Labour recognises the value of open green space and continues to enhance and protect the green lungs of Exeter.”
