Ashfield MP Gloria De Piero has urged residents in Brinsley who are concerned about housing developments to speak up and have their say.
The call comes as the new neighbourhood plans which earmark an area of land for building new homes were put out by Brinsley Parish Council for consultation.
Ms De Piero said: “It’s absolutely vital that local folk have their say on these plans.
“I know it’s an issue everyone in Brinsley is extremely passionate about and I’d go as far to say it’s probably the number one concern in the village whenever I’ve spoken to people who live here.”
The consultation runs until Friday 14th November 5pm. Visit www.broxtowe.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplans.
