THERE are obvious reasons behind the turning down of a green eco-community plan in Ashwell.
The most telling is that although the scheme will produce an environment which has a green quality - the area will be polluted by the number of extra vehicles on the road.

It will be interesting to see the outcome when the planning experts consider a plan to be the right scheme.
