We the undersigned residents, neighbours and supporters of the community at Wornington Green state our extreme concern about the development as proposed in the planning application. We urge the Council to apply very stringently the SPD guidelines that were agreed through consultation with residents over many months. This sets out requirements such as to house all existing residents, to keep families together by housing older and adult household members on the estate, to provide usable private outdoor space for every home, not to increase car use but to increase pedestrian priority, to provide a new Venture Centre that would accommodate extra provisions and lettable space, with facilities for health, education, fitness, and for young people. The proposal in its current form offers no benefits to the community that has been called ‘an exemplar diverse and sustainable community’. Without compliance to the Council's SPD as agreed with residents, we will not cooperate but will actively oppose the current planning application.
