Green Party moves to block Church Stretton housing plan

17 February 2019

Objections have been lodged to the earmarking of two greenfield sites in south Shropshire for housing.

The South Shropshire Green Party said it has submitted an eight-page document to Shropshire Council urging the authority to drop the plans for the two sites in Church Stretton.

The group said the council has earmarked sites near Gaerstone Farm and Snatchfield Farm.

The party said neither of the identified sites are suitable for housing, the most pressing issue being that it is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which brings with it a high level of protection from suburban development, such as housing, roads, street lighting and car parking.
