We are awaiting the result of the inquiry at this moment in time.
Below are listed our main, reasoned arguments for protecting Brockworth Green Belt
The Green belt at Brockworth is identified as an important open space in the Tewkes Local Plan Two out of three Green belt reviews have been positive and show the area to make a positive contribution to the Green Belt. Criteria have remained constant and the latest review is inconsistent. Over 1000 people have signed a petition objecting to the use of Brockworth Green Belt as a site for development. Submitted to TBC Over 300 objections to the outline planning permission for 1500 houses in Brockworth have been recieved by the planning department of TBC Brockworth Parish Council, Hucclecote Parish Council and Local MP laurence Robertson oppose the building of houses on Brockworth Green Belt. The vast scale of the proposed development is extreme and will result in the total over-development of the village. The roadway of Mill Lane and junction onto the A46 will not cope with the huge amount of traffic .Congestion will be a major problem The principal of removing strategic sites from the JCS plan which are not Green belt whilst retaining sites which are Green Belt is strongly challenged. A brownfield site remains undeveloped along Ermin street in Brockworth . There is also under-development of the Business park. NPPF stating that any site previously designated as a Business site can be utilised for housing if left undeveloped. Together with possible future windfall sites and the continuing development at Coopers Edge..Brockworth shows that some sites are available without the need to encroach onto to the Green Belt SAC Cotswold Beech wood The development proposals may have a significant impact on this area. Cotwold AONB management plan JCS Sustainability appraisal..some comments concerning Brockworth as a strategic site. .....1.)Re-Habitats along Horsebere Brook..retention of these features will be problematic in terms of the large number of houses 2.)Carbon emissions from the large development will impact on the settlement and neighbouring areas 3) 1500 houses on the narrow linear area will have an adverse impact on the setting of the historic buildings 4) The area will require enhanced health care 5) A careful master plan will need to consider the topography and strong green corridor The Perrybrook outline plan does not fit in with the LEP assessment
