Protect the Green Belt off Gornal

UPDATE: The last date for submitting an objection has now passed, but please still sign the petition using the link below.

South Staffordshire District Council have begun a review of the Green Belt land surrounding Gornal. There has already been a reduction in the grading of the Green Belt on two fields, creating more justification for the removal of the Green Belt status and the building of approximately 800 houses. Sections of this land have also been identified in a ‘call for sites’, where developers are expected to submit proposals for the building of new homes.

This land is located at the following locations, north of Sandyfields Road, west of The Straits, and north of Brick Kiln Lane/Himley Road. This is part of a proposal by South Staffordshire District Council to place around 4,000 homes on the border of the Black Country. This would destroy the Green Belt and defy the purpose of its designation, which is to prevent urban expansion.

One such proposal has already been submitted. It is important that local residents take this opportunity to oppose the change of Green Belt status and object to any potential house building on this land. The closing date for the consultation is on the 12th December 2019 so it is vital that we get as many local people as possible to object as soon as possible.
