More than 1,000 people sign petition against loss of greenbelt

Solihull Editorial 22nd Apr, 2021   0

A PETITION to stop a slice of the green belt from being bulldozed to build a massive car park has been handed in to Solihull Council with more than 1,000 signatures.

The petition was in response to a planning application by IAC to build 388 additional car parking spaces at their site on Progress Way, Marston Green. The proposal is on green belt land and means destroying landscaping already established.

Protesters argue that trees will be uprooted diluting the buffer zone between the site and local residents in Blackfirs Lane who fought hard to achieve the green space.

The petition received widespread support including from local councillors Bob Sleigh and Alison Rolfe, the latter presenting it at full council.

The planning application will be heard on Monday, April 26.
