No To Building Plans For Coombes Wood Greenbelt

To be presented to Halesowen North councillors petitioning that there should be no building development whatsoever within the Coombes Wood Green Wedge area of Halesowen. The petition is produced in response to St Modwen proposals to extend Olive Hill Primary School sports facilities and to relocate Coombes Wood Cricket And Social Club within Coombes Wood protected green belt land. The scale and nature of these proposals are an unacceptable threat to the unique character of Coombes Wood. Borough greenbelt is a much-loved resource integral to the recreation and education of local residents and is precious because there is so little of it. The integrity of Coombes Wood green wedge must therefore be given precedence over St Modwen\'s profit driven development proposals. Alternative non-greenbelt sites can and must be found for these proposed facilities if they are to be built.

  • Tony Hathaway It's about time that soulless developers such as St Modern showed more respect for green belt land and for nature. This green wedge is a habitat for wildlife and should be preserved.
    Especially with the amount of brownfield land nearby.
    Shame on you ST Modern .

  • Anonymous I would like to show my support for keeping Coombswood as a greenwedge with no building of houses suggested as in the article in Halesowen News 26.01.15. WE NEED GREEN SPACE get rid of derelict areas first such as the eye sores that are HOLT ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL & THE AREA THAT USED TO BE BTH GROUNDS corner of Cakemore road, Nimmings rd and Fairfield Rd This land is a total disgrace & breeding ground for vermin - encouraging litter & fly tipping and a meeting place for local youngsters with no where else to go.
