Local Residents Defend The Greenbelt

Shocked resident heard of the extent of proposed Greenbelt loss in the revised GMSF on Saturday 2nd February 2019 at a meeting in Thornham Cricket Club.

Many were shocked to hear that the revised GMSF plan is still looking at taking a large area of local Greenbelt.

The local allocation [GM 2 Stakehill] if it goes ahead, will see the building of 900 new houses and an extra 250,000sq metres of industrial units swallowing up the fields around Chesham Estate, Slattocks and Stakehill. The area stretches across to Chadderton leaving a ‘corridor’ of Greenbelt between Thornham Lane and the A627M  link road.
