RBWM has to create a Local Development Plan, and all who have followed its progress will know that it proposes building on a disproportionate amount of Green Belt close to or within the Parish of Bray.
Holyport Residents Association polled members and other Holyport Residents in 2014 and found that over 90% of those who responded were in favour of protecting our Green Belt land.
Many residents and the HRA commented on the RBWM Local Plan proposals in 2014 and succeeded in persuading RBWM that the two areas close to Holyport under attack at at that time would not be built upon.
However, the new Local Development Plan proposes that one of these areas - the triangle bounded by the M4 the A308(M) and the A330 will be built on. Also the area across the A308(M) from there and the Golf Course.
Over Christmas 2016 we had an opportunity to comment on the RBWM Local Development Plan. There will soon be a second consultation opportunity. RBWM is on record saying that our comments on the second consultation are to be limited to whether the plan is sound and the process of its creation legal (or something like that). I have read the legislation and I do not believe that we are limited in our comments. I attended a Bray Parish Council meeting on 10th April 2017 at which a CPRE representative confirmed in answer to my question, that for this second consultation we should comment as much as for the previous with no limitation on what we may say against it.
SO PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU COMMENT AND BE AS FORTHRIGHT AS YOU LIKE IN PROTECTING OUR GREENBELT LAND.
Please also be aware that if Heathrow Airport gets its third runway there will be further pressure for new homes to be built.
The most immediate attack is an actual planning application by the Thames Hospice - Planning reference 17/00798/FULL, this being for land between the A308 (Windsor Road) and Bray Lake. I have objected to that, and there is further information on this under tab "Local Problems - WINDSOR ROAD"
