The new Staffordshire Moorlands Local Plan is currently under examination by the Planning Inspectorate.
It was proposed to allocate the greenspace east and west of Dorset Drive as Local Green Space. However, the Inspector has recommended their removal which puts them at risk of future development.
Paras. 99-101 of the National Planning Policy Framework allows for the designation of Local Green Space, and the proposed designations clearly meet with the criteria
We, the undersigned, petition Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to robustly challenge the Inspector's recommendations and retain the greenspace off Dorset Drive as designated Local Green Space.
Local Green Space is a precious resource, they sustain Bio-diversity, enhance recreation and wellbeing, and help mitigate against the effects of climate change.
The Local Green Space at Dorset Drive enhances the setting and character of this close to Town Centre estate, it's loss would be to both residents of the estate and the Town overall.
