Stonehouse Tennants Action Group is actively campaigning to save the Baginton Fields Nature Reserve from housing development.
Due to local support STAG has now constituted as a organisation in its battle against the Coventry City Council proposal to sell off 3.2 acres of the Baginton Field Nature Reserve for housing development.
The Reserve is accessible along the A45 close to Toll Barr End and via the playing fields at the bottom of the Stonehouse Estate) the Reserve is yet another area of greenfield site under threat.
The land which is ‘proposed for development’ was once home to a Ministry of Health Baginton Fields Hostel which housed displaced people from Europe, homeless local people and ex-prisoners of war during and after the Second World War.
The Action Groups want to see the Reserve which is now a Site of Nature Conservation saved from housing development and continue to be home and haven to the local wildlife that has reclaimed the site over the last 50 years. STAG is also interested in the Site being dedicated to the memory of the people who were welcomed and supported during those difficult times and linked to Coventry’s Peace and Reconciliation status. It should also be recognised for what it is, a valuable green space for the leisure activities of local people, not destroyed for housing stock.
Further information can be found on STAG site http://www.savethomaswalk.co.uk/
We, the undersigned, call upon Coventry City Council to stop the sale of the greenfield site on Baginton Fields for the proposed housing development.
