Please help stop property developers from destroying our countryside. An application for affordable housing has been submitted to Cheshire East Council which will destroy a unique woodland feature on Marthall Lane, Ollerton in the supposedly protected Cheshire Green Belt. Despite having so-called protection from development, the law provides loopholes for property developers to exploit and believe it or not, could allow the Green Belt to be built on.
There are far more suitable brown field and derelict locations in the area that could, and indeed should be developed, but of course this land is more expensive than 'protected' green belt. Voila, out comes a proposal from the developer that may allow destruction of this unique habitat.
This petition does not reflect anyone's opinion on the merits of affordable housing or whether such housing is needed in our village but is purely a statement of our desire to protect the Green Belt.
The planning application number is 10/2203M and the consultation period ends on August 11th 2010.
We, the undersigned, are opposed to the destruction of the Green Belt in Ollerton, Cheshire.
The Save the Green Belt in Ollerton petition to Cheshire East Council was written by saveollerton campaign and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
