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.


Friends Of Coombes Wood are a group concerned with protecting the greenbelt status of Coombes Wood and promoting the historical, recreational and environmental assets of the site for the education and enjoyment of all.

    5 years ago Comments: there is precious little open space in this country as it is. once it is gone there is nothing we can do about it for us or future generations. not having enough natural open space in urban areas is now known to contribute significantlty to depression and stress. it is also a major factor in where i want to live. if Dudley council go ahead with this development, i would seriously consider moving to another area and paying my council tax to a council that actually listens to the residents needs, and respects the importance of open space. with mass unemployment in this area we need this space more than ever, it could even help to keep the NHS bill down .
