WORCESTER'S MP says he is pleased to see his wish list for the city already starting to come to fruition.

In June, after his re-election, Robin Walker spoke to the Worcester News and gave is a list of long-term objectives he wanted to see happen in Worcester.

The MP said he welcomed news that one his objectives, the regeneration of brownfields sites, was being helped to be achieved through one of the planning applications he identified - the 215 home estate planned for the old Metal Box factory.

Mr Walker said he welcomed the news the site had been given the go-ahead, after the scheme from Taylor Wimpey was approved by councillors last month.

"It is certainly something I welcome," the MP said.

"It is an ideal location for housing - it makes sense as it is very central within the city.

"The city needs more family homes."

The MP said there were other positive developments related to his wish list, including a possible announcement soon on the £70 million bid to dual Worcester's Carrington Bridge, which he had been lobbying for.

"We have had a lot of good news recently, with the announcement of more funding for Worcestershire Royal Hospital, and fairer funding for schools - which I have campaigned for," the MP said

"It is all welcome to see."

The MP also pointed to the redevelopment in the city, such as the £20 million Cathedral Square redevelopment scheme, saying this was an area he would continue to push on as he hoped to see more of it in the city.
