I’m both angry and disappointed for local families whose views have simply been ignored by this process. It’s unfortunate that yet again the community, and most importantly the children of Hewett, have been let down. What was the point of holding a consultation and ignoring the result simply because it wasn’t the answer the Government and the Inspiration Trust wanted?
I intend to obtain responses shortly from the Secretary of State on a number of outstanding issues. Clearly there are still serious concerns over the land and I’ll be spending the coming days and weeks speaking to local parents and the community, to get the best outcome for the families and city I represent. This has always been and always will remain their campaign but it is one I and many others in Norwich have been moved by.
