The small field attached to number 166 Middle Road, Sholing is greatly valued by local residents as an attractive green space. It is also a valuable haven for wildlife.

Building houses on the land would increase traffic congestion, disrupt the wildlife corridor that links into the Miller’s Pond Local Nature Reserve and possibly obstruct drainage on the steep ground.

I oppose the building of any permanent structures on the site.

**UPDATE**

I would like to make it very clear that we are not petitioning against Frank's family. We have no quarrel with them personally. If you are a member of the family I would be very grateful if you can please make contact with me.

    Hello everyone. I recently approached the agents with a view to buying this house, it seemed a very unique property and I've always enjoyed open space. However after talking to the agents the 'family' have decided to cut the garden off at the second gate and keep 80% of the plot. I was told they plan to resubmit for 3 dwellings, obviously they will keep going until something goes their way. From my point of view the plot left with the property is in fact smaller than the gardens next to it, even worse was the fact they're asking £310,000 for a property they themselves paid £275,000 for with the land. Anyway good luck :)

    To build on this land will be ridiculous, that whole strip of area both sides of the road are beautiful to walk down. Will our future generations have no natural green areas to enjoy?? I remember moving to the area 16yrs ago and walking past to watch the sheep grazing and chat about plants.

    We don't want anything built on the breautiful green area at the back of our garden. My young children love being so close to many wildlife and bird species and sit for hours in the window watching. It's very rare to have such a space like this nowadays. To develop it would greatly increase the traffic congestion on an already busy school route, the local schools are already oversubscribed and parking has become an issue in the surrounding roads.
