Treasure the Green Belt


Your article hit the spot! Our green belt should be treasured and maintained.

Why are we being told that there is a need for more housing? Who needs it? Could the school cope with the children from over 90 extra households?

Where will those households work? Not in Barnt Green that’s certain. Next year will see the 145 bus service withdrawn, so no transport infrastructure except the railway.

Oh yes, is there another brownfield alternative? Longbridge is currently being developed to provide just the sort of housing that Bromsgrove tell us we need, but, although only a mile away, it is not in Bromsgrove.

Our representatives should take heed of our community feeling. We do not want green belt development.
