Save Our Greenbelts Ravenfield and Bramley

The Rotherham Action Group are members of the local communities who have joined together to campaign against Rotherham Borough Councils plans to build on green belt land throughout the Borough. RMBC plans to build between 24500 and 32000 houses in the Borough. Along the Ravenfield/Bramley Parish Line, (Lidgit Lane /Moor Lane South) the plan is to build over 1270 new homes, and business units, as well as in smaller areas around the Parishes. Wickersley does not escape lightly either, with plans to build across the Parish. Along Greasborough and Rawmarsh (Bassingthorpe Farm) the plan is to build 3600 new homes on green belt land. THAT IS THE SIZE OF ALMOST 6000 FOOTBALL PITCHES. Now, assume two adults and two children to a house. Local infrastructure will not cope with this massive increase in population. Schools will not be able to accommodate children, doctors and dentists would not cope with the numbers, fire and the Police Service who are already under-staffed, would not be able to cope with the increased workload. Where would these people come from And where would they work If we haven’t included your Parish, it does not mean it is not up for development of Greenbelt – please email us and we will try to steer you in the right direction.

    1 year ago Comments: I object to building on Green Belt Land when our area has so much urban sprawl and so little countryside & farm areas. There are plenty of brown land areas where building can and is going ahead eg. Orgreave. There are plenty of empty business premises that could have a change of use.
