I cannot understand why Mid-Beds District Council has refused permission to Center Parcs to build a new complex in Bedfordshire because of green belt issues. I have been to all Center Parcs holiday villages in England and I can honestly say that they ensure they fit in with the environment, in fact if you were driving past on a local road you would not even know they were there.

When will Mid-Beds District Council realise that the UK economy is based on the service industry, this country is no longer an industrial nation.

This is a tremendous opportunity for local people and businesses. It should go ahead.
