Our local Green Belt is under threat.
The Black Country Plan proposes building across green spaces that are so important to our local community, including:
- 533 houses on the Kingswinford Triangle between Swindon Road, Lodge Lane and Kidderminser Road;
- 330 houses on land between Holbeache Lane and the Charterfields estate.
Not only would this destroy Green Belt Land – but add unacceptable pressure to our local amenities, such as schools, roads and GPs.
We do need to build more homes, but there has to be a ‘brownfield first’ development policy. This would rejuvenate unused land, provide the vital homes we need and leave our previous Green Belt intact.
I'm working with local councillors in Kingswinford and Wall Heath to get these homes built in the right place, but we need your help.
Please sign the petition, respond to the public consultation and join our campaign to save our Green Belt, for our children and future generations to enjoy.
