And about time too

When I first moved here over five years ago I was pleased to learn that they were planning to turn the South Downs into a national park since my house is about 50 meters from the edge. It came up when my solicitor did the local searches and we quickly agreed that these plans would not affect the value of my property negatively. In fact, the sooner it was declared the better. The final announcement was made today, after years of public enquiry. The local MP is not happy but as far as I can tell he is in a minority around here.

hoorah for National Park status. The same happened with the New Forest when I lived there, and the pro and anti groups tried to get me on their side at various opportunities. But it seemed all good to me. Why is the local MP so opposed? Does it take away some of their control?

Something to do with local businesses and more difficult to get planning permission to put build an extension!

Is he a black minority?
