CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) Warwickshire started their “Brownfield first” campaign on social media this week. Please find their Facebook page here. You might recognise the photographs, both aerial and ground based, for they are of sites around Coventry.
Coventry City Council and other local authority planning areas – Warwick, Solihull, Stratford, Rugby, Nuneaton and Bedworth along with North Warwickshire – must be made stop trashing our countryside and instead build on the masses of brownfield sites that exist in their districts, cities and boroughs. It is absolutely criminal that they ignore this available land and prefer instead to take the easy route of allowing developers to bulldoze and concrete over of our green fields.
What would be great is if you would look at the link, then like it and comment on it. And then even better, forward it to your contacts list. The more people that get to understand what is being done to our countryside and object to it, the more likely Councils and their councillors will start being a bit more wary – you might vote them out of office!
