Virtual interview invitation:

Debbie and Mark Griffiths invite you to take part in a ‘virtual interview with Stratford upon Avon’s Member of Parliament, Nadhim Zahawi.

We are meeting face to face with Mr Zahawi on Friday 1 February, to represent the opposition to 800 houses and a link road on the green fields behind Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and to explore what our MP can do to help.

“Nadhim took the lead by objecting passionately to Boles and Pickles in Parliament back in November.  But what more could he do now?” asks Mark. “We have the chance to ask him, so we wanted to share that opportunity with everyone who opposes the Shottery development.

“Here’s how the virtual interview will work: you can email us or post your question or comment for Nadhim below, or post it via twitter or Facebook.  We’ll collate them all and present the top ten to him next week.”

If you have a question or suggestion that you’d like Save Shottery to put to Stratford’s MP, you can leave a comment in the box below or send an email to:  Alternatively, you can leave a message on the Save Shottery Facebook page or @saveshottery on Twitter – please use the hashtag #virtualMPQ.

Many other organisations object to the Shottery housing development, including Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (SBT) and Stratford District Council (SDC). The Council is currently appealing against the Secretary of State’s decision, while SBT is still conducting research into the effects the development could have on Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and the Trust itself.

We believe more would be achieved if all opponents worked together. We’lll be asking Mr Zahawi what he is able to do to bring everyone in the town together to find strength in numbers, as a united Stratford against unwanted development.
