Under Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council Core Strategy the northern end of Greenlands Park, North Anston, has been ear marked for a sustainable housing development.
This well established green area with mature blossoming trees including Horse Chestnut, Lime and many others which will, without doubt be felled should this proposal be adopted.
Another concern is that additional housing will bring an increase in traffic to the road that runs passed Anston Greenlands Junior and Infant School, which already struggles to cope with parking at drop-off and pick-up times.
The Park is very well used and appreciated by both the retired people who live in the area and young families within easy walking distance of it.
We, the undersigned, call on Rotherham Borough Council to reject proposals for any kind of building development on Greenlands Park, North Anston, now or in the future.
