Deepcut Public Meeting – Michael Gove MP

Michael Gove MP - Deepcut Public Meeting 24 Feb 12Last Friday, Michael Gove MP attended the public meeting at Deepcut Village Centre to listen to residents’ concerns regarding the proposed redevelopment of the Princess Royal Barracks. Hundreds of concerned residents turned out to express their concerns to Michael and other members of the panel, which included Chas Bradfield, Deputy Chief Executive of Surrey Heath Borough Council and John Taylor, Estates Surveyor of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

Michael said:

“Right from the beginning, I have been struck that people could have opposed this redevelopment altogether, but that hasn’t been the position of the community. Residents are willing to work with the planners and the Council. Residents recognise that the idea of sensitively planned and appropriately developed additional housing is a good thing but the balance has to be got right. On that basis I have been trying to, as their representative, put concerns across. I also want to thank the Deepcut Liaison Group for all their hard work and for organising this meeting”

Michael will be meeting the Deepcut Liaison Group, the DIO, GVA/AMEC, Surrey Heath Borough Council, Surrey County Council, and Natural England, to ensure that residents concerns are given full consideration.

If you have any issues you would like to raise about the proposed redevelopment, please email Michael at michael.gove.mp@parliament.uk , and he will bring them forward at his meeting.

Michael GoveFriday 21st October Camberley Working Mens Club at 7.30pm

This is being organised by the non party-political discussion group “Politicos”.

The event is entitled, “An Outstanding Debate: England After the Riots” and will involve the following speakers:-

“Rt. Hon Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Education (Conservative)

Michael Gove, Surrey Heath’s MP, needs no introduction. His angry clash with Harriet Harman over the relationship between unemployment and social deprivation was one of the defining media events related to the riots.

Lord Maurice Glasman (Labour)

Maurice Glasman is famous for promoting ideas of “Blue Labour” within the Labour Party. These are centred on history, health and heritage or the three Rs, roots, reciprocity, and relationships. His ideas feature a strong aversion to unrestricted market forces.

Tom Brake MP (Liberal Democrat)

Tom Brake clashed with David Davies on Sky Television about the imposition of severe sentences on rioters convicted for petty offences. He believes that these sentences do not work as a means of preventing repeat offending. His strong interest in the rehabilitation is summed up as restorative justice.

The chairman will be Peter Henley who is one of the leading presenters on the BBC’s Politics Show.”
