Mid-2020 saw us score a significant victory, but we’re not out of the woods yet. The residential Garden Village plans for Stanmore have been dropped (much to Lord Hamilton’s annoyance and that of our elected representatives who were rather confident it was a ‘done deal’). However, Shropshire Council are still aggressively pursuing employment land at Stanmore. They want 28 acres (11.5 ha) of totally unsuitable greenbelt land to expand Stanmore industrial estate. This plan is now out to consultation, and we urgently need your help, please complete the consultation so that we can protect Bridgnorth’s greenbelt once and for all.
We’ve been working hard behind the scenes, with the superb Richard Buxton Solicitors and our fantastic planning consultant, and we believe we have a strong case as to why Shropshire Council should not allocate any land in the greenbelt, but we need your help to get them to back off entirely. The deadline for this final round, or what is called the Regulation 19 – or pre-submission draft – Consultation is 26th February 2021. We hope you’ll join us so that Bridgnorth’s precious greenbelt protected, for the enjoyment of many generations to come.
