No done deal for eco-developers says Flint

Developers will not have carte blanche when it comes to building the government's proposed eco-towns, said housing minister Caroline Flint yesterday

Housing minister Caroline Flint told council leaders, local councillors, residents and developers at a proposed eco-town at the Middle Quinton site near Stratford-upon-Avon that there is certainly no 'done deal' for developers.

"There is clearly a need for more housing in the region, but there will be a further consultation before deciding up to ten potential locations for eco-towns across the country," said Flint

"If Middle Quinton makes that final shortlist, the developers will still need to go through the planning process, and will be subject to full public consultation."
