• Stop Hitchcocks Expansion
    Dear Mr Radford, We, the members of the communities of Uffculme and Willand, strongly object to the proposed expansion of Hitchcocks Business Park [32 hectares (80 football fields) of agricultural/Greenfield land]. We have objections on four grounds: (1) The plan stands in stark contrast to county and national policies to avoid building on Greenfield land and contrasts bluntly to recent promises of working towards a zero emissions economy. (2) The plan would contribute to a permanent change to the character of the local area: from rural tranquillity to an industrial landscape. Especially when combining this plan with the proposed development of 70 hectares [175 football fields] at junction 27; (3) It would negatively impact on road safety; with special concern for the junctions leading to and from Uffculme School, and (4) It would unquestionably have a negative impact on community health and wellbeing with an additional 700 cars and 60 lorries going in and out of Hitchcocks with their fumes, light and noise. Thank you for taking these objections into account when you make your final decision regarding the Application. Yours sincerely, The people of Uffculme and Willand.

  • Crawley Town FC training ground
    Crawley Town FC is loved by many in the Crawley area. The club has been struggling with training facilities for years and has been forced to use unsafe plastic pitches and local school grounds. The current training ground situation is not good enough for the club to progress to the next level. With access to the land at Bewbush, RH11 8WB, Crawley Town FCs success will progress greatly resulting in more opportunities for the residents of Crawley, an increase in the community and more visitors to the Crawley area which will have a positive effect on the local economy. Football often has a huge positive impact on towns and cities and this training ground land is about the longevity and foundation of Crawley Town FC. For these reasons, it will be a massive success for the Crawley community if Crawley Town FC are allowed to use Bewbush as their training ground site.

  • Save the Barbican Estate from harmful redevelopment
    The Barbican, described by Queen Elizabeth as "one of the modern wonders of the world" is an internationally famous icon of the Brutalist architectural style and a utopian ideal for city living. The City of London School for Girls has expanded piecemeal over the last 50 years, each time encroaching on the grounds and architectural features of the Estate, compromising the vision of the architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon. These latest proposals, if approved, would inflict major harm on this global cultural asset, by obscuring the double-height piloti, adding large new structures which will be visible across the Estate and removing a stunning Grade II* listed vista in the Estate’s 50th year.

  • Please change our unused park...
    It's a waste of space, lots of younger children live near there and no one uses it... It only has bars and gym/training equipment, none of which any children use and could be dangerous if they try... Please, please change it into a park local children can use and enjoy...

  • Prohibition of Verge and Pavement Parking (Traffic Regulation Order)TRO
    The residents on Ashland have had issues with people parking their cars inconsiderately for a long time now. This causes problems to people who are either with pushchairs or have to use mobility aids to gain access to the pathways around the estate estate leaving them vulnerable to be hit by a car when they have to go on the road to pass a car parked illegally. We also have a huge issue whenever there are football matches or other events on at the stadium MK, where people park on footpath‘s, blocking people‘s driveways or on the corner of roads and verges. This is becoming dangerous and there have been so many near misses to the most vulnerable who live on our estate. Pavements are not designed to have cars half or fully parked on, this will eventually cause the pavements to break and potholes appear. The estate has been built with adequate parking. Parking in a footpath is illegal either half or fully is illegal. So we are requesting that the council put in the regulation to stop this issue. So we can live in a safe estate.

  • Save Osler Street Park from being built on.
    Osler Street Park is an extremely important and well used green space and play area provision for our local community. It is well used by all local residents including students, families, teenagers and young children. It is a well designed, safe space with easy access and will not be able to just be replaced. The play park and Multi Use Games Area provide an important leisure and recreation site which children and adults alike can use to exercise and socialise for free, thereby promoting a healthy lifestyle. The surrounding green space (including trees) is an extremely valuable green site and open space which should be protected. It also provides recreational and exercise opportunities and helps to contribute towards cleaner air for our community. The local community do not want this precious space taken away from us. We believe that any development or building on this site goes directly against the policy for promoting and enhancing a green infrastructure network in the City (TP7) which is detailed in the Birmingham Development plan.

  • Keep the Elm Avenue Stadium as a Sports Ground for local people
    The Stadium at Elm Avenue should not be destroyed by property development as it is an sports area of rich historic significance for the people of Newark. In the past, the land has been passed over to local government ownership with a view to it remaining as a sports area for local people. There is little free-access or low-cost sports space in this town and this precious yet currently underused space is in demand. There are football teams and other local people who are keen to use this space but it has been governed in such a way that they could not afford to use it and so it has little use at present. This is a terrible shame as we need to encourage more grass-roots sport. If the Stadium space is built on, the local people will lose yet another area of green. As Newark is an area low social mobility and multiple studies have shown links between access to green-space and economic well-being, the local government should be doing everything in its power to protect any remaining green-space. In addition green areas are needed now more than ever to mitigate against climate change. Instead of removing urban green space, we need to protect and improve it, for example by adding further trees to the entrance to the site and thereby supplementing the few that exist already. Help us to first protect and then maintain this urban green area for current and future generations of Newark to enjoy.

  • Help us save two historic buildings in Newton Le Willows
    The restoration works will save the manor house, which was built in 1774, and barn which dates back to the 1600s and will deliver a further 10 apartments. The listed buildings have lain empty for decades and have fallen into an advanced state of disrepair, and this is the last opportunity to save the buildings, which are described by Historic England as being “not only of local significance but of national importance.” It will also provide much needed family homes for the local area.

  • Cuckoo Hill, Bures: Retrospective planning permission should not be granted for new applications
    A developer has knowingly built 6 houses in breach of planning permission. In July 2018 an application for retrospective planning permission was refused by the Planning Committee. Work has continued on site and now 3 new applications for retrospective planning permission for Plots 1-4 have been submitted. The developer has ignored local concerns, intimidated residents and run rough shod over neighbours by continuing to build houses both higher than approved and closer to neighbours. The new properties dominate the skyline and overshadow original houses and gardens intruding on residents’ privacy. We ask Babergh District Council Planning Committee to stick to the decision made in 2018 and refuse retrospective planning permission for the site.
