Chris Nutt from Save Oakfield Site said, “Oakfield playing fields are in constant use by people of all ages and backgrounds: we represent the cohesive and active community that politicians want. We are staggered at Redbridge Council’s plans to sell it off for development. There is no gain for the local community whatever. And the proposals don’t include affordable homes. There is no need to build on this piece of Green Belt in Redbridge. The council can allocate land for housing in Ilford Town Centre or on brownfield sites.”
Caroline Donnelly in Hillingdon said, “We are fighting back against a potential development threat to our green, open space in Hayes End known locally as Hayes Park. It was recently put up for sale for £5 million. There have been numerous attempts to develop the site in the past, but the local community has stood up and protested. We are really concerned that, with the recent shift in government policy regarding Green Belt land protections, we will have a much bigger fight on our hands this time around.”
Balvinder Dhillon from Keep Osterley Green said, “The proposal to put a free school on the White Lodge site in Hounslow is bewildering. The site is not designated for education use and it is not shortlisted in the Local Plan site allocations. The lawful use of the site is for sports and recreation. Furthermore there are many suitable brownfield alternatives readily available. Our council seems to treat this finite resource with disdain, with current plans allowing a number of the borough’s new free schools to be built on Metropolitan Open Land.”
Note that London’s Green Belt extends well beyond the Greater London Authority (GLA) boundary. This map currently only shows threats to Green Belt land within the GLA boundary. Very worryingly, the threats go well beyond this boundary. Other CPRE branches are also campaigning to protect the Green Belt around London.
