LIBERAL DEMOCRATS POST FAKE NEWS ON THEIR WEB SITE STATING HOMES ARE UNDER THREAT IF A SOUTHERN ROUTE IS CHOSEN
The Liberal Democrats have posted a poll on their web site and have stated that 150 homes will need to be destroyed in Wixams if there is a Southern Route. We felt it necessary to state how completely unscrupulous and, dare we say it, IMMORAL that the Lib Dems have done this to residents of Wixams. We feel it necessary to get the FACTS out there and avoid all of the **fake news** that the LIB DEMS are promoting to secure their destructive Northern Route through Bedford. Link to the Lib Dem article is below.
Wixams homes will not be destroyed. They were never under threat even with the original 2019 route optIons A, B or C. The idea that they would be destroyed is Lib Dem propaganda to support their own malicious objectives.
In the original Route Options paper, it was only the Poets Neighbourhood homes that were under threat (as they still are with the unnecessary and destructive current preferred route). There is a much better route for Bedford where no one has to lose their homes. We are promoting this sensible route – as shown below.
