Nottingham City Council plan to develop housing and a Stadium on Rushcliffe green belt land. Media releases suggest plans for 3500 - 4500 houses and a Stadium. These plans were released to local media on 07/09/09 without any prior consultation with local residents.
An independent survey of the area by Tribal Solutions (partly funded by Nottingham City Council) had already identified the area as unsuitable for development. The proposed location is designated green belt and contravenes current planning guidelines (Planning Policy Guidance 2 Green Belt). It is also on a River Trent floodplain so contravenes Flood Planning Policy Statement 25 Development & Flood Risk.
Furthermore the scale of the development cannot be supported by the local infrastructure.
We, the undersigned call on all appropriate planning authorities, local, regional and central government and, if necessary, the Secretary of State to refuse permission for any large scale development on the green belt in the parish of Holme Pierrepont and Gamston.
In our view any large scale development would pose a real threat to the environment and would represent a loss of leisure and visual amenity for the residents of Gamston, Bassingfield, Adbolton and Holme Pierrepont plus the surrounding villages and West Bridgford.
Further, any such development would not be sustainable and the infrastructure is totally inadequate.
