Story

A large area of green belt on the east side of BEACONSFIELD is at serious risk. SBDC are threatening to release this land from the protection of green belt status. If released from green belt, it will be developed, potentially increasing the size of the town by one third.

Following 2 public consultations, the SBDC interim position is that it is “likely” to be released from green belt and massive development. SBDC have it potentially earmarked for 1500 – 1700 homes plus offices/commercial development (commercial development could include warehousing, a logistics depot, light industrial buildings and retail) and even a site for travellers is included.

The SBDC’s evidence base work is not yet complete, for example “refined transport modelling is continuing” and a “viability assessment” is underway. SBDC are also still considering whether any ADDITIONAL green belt land should be released. The various landowners of the green belt in Beaconsfield are lobbying SBDC for their green belt land to be released for development and together they own. There is string of office headquarters around the Pyebush roundabout in a further “vision” by Inland and the block of flats overlooking the cricket pitch:

Hall Barn has a “vision” for some of its green belt. Note the string of large commercial buildings (marked F) from the Pyebush roundabout, right down to the motorway: Our view is that our green belt should be protected and not released from development because: there are flaws in the consultation process and the SBDC evidence base; infrastructure and services could not cope; the “relief” road would provide no relief; it is not a sustainable option; and it is not a viable option.

The landowners and developers are lobbying FOR release of our green belt for massive development. We need your support to fight this because no-one else will. We simply cannot do this without your support. This is your last chance to fight to save our green belt. In order to engage expert planning consultants and a barrister, we need to raise c. £50,000.

We understand that two other nearby areas have raised £70,000 and £25,000 respectively and have engaged their experts, so it can be done. We need this money by the time SBDC releases its draft Local Plan document (which they say they plan to release in May) so that we too can instruct experts to act. So, we are launching this major campaign now to raise money to fight for our green belt.

    We are all carrying huge smiles today as we hit out target today - but also its a bit sad too because it might scare off those thinking of contributing - we still could do with extra - as lawyers aren't cheap and we could do with extra time - so if you are thinking of giving still do :-)

    We are well and truly in to experts work with landscape, planning and green belt specialists and have had meetings with our legal team and other representatives- lots of great feedback and whilst we have raised loads (Thank You😁) we still would like more for air pollution reports and more traffic modelling. Please do tell friends every donation helps and counts a lot.
