The Black Country Plan is a legal document that sets out the approach of our local Councils to meet our housing needs over the next few decades. It considers all sites around the area and designates them for housing use.
We've had some great news this week that the land off Wilderness Lane, Great Barr has been saved from the bulldozers. The site could've been turned into 2,500 homes but, thanks to opposition from local residents, this will now no longer be the case.
However, it was bitterly disappointing to hear that land at Painswick Close, Yew Tree, has now been designated for housing.
The site, off Painswick Close, has been earmarked for 120 new properties. We are completely against this with a view on how it will affect nearby roads, surgeries, and school places.
So, we're working to stop this. And we need your support.
As we saw in Great Barr, when the local community make their voice heard, we have a good chance of saving our precious green spaces for future generations.
So, we've set up a petition to Sandwell MBC to save land off Painswick Close from the bulldozers.
