Objection to development on the precious green land between Allard Way and London Road

We the undersigned petition the Council to reject their own proposals set out in planning application OUT/2020/2665. We join with Coventry Tree Wardens in asking the Council to reconsider plans to allow building on this important public green space and sacrificing yet another area that is helping to prevent climate change and is keeping Coventry people healthy.

This is a beautiful area where local people can breathe clean air whilst wandering amongst some very important old trees, a wildflower meadow and a maturing new woodland actually planted by our Council.
All of these are under threat.

These two roads are already some of the busiest in Coventry and any further development would greatly increase both traffic and pollution, seriously affecting people's health.

The land was and should still be Green Belt.

We understand that the building quota allocated in the Local Plan for this area is already being met on adjoining land. There is also evidence that population growth figures and housing needs have been over-estimated.

Building on this site is therefore unnecessary and would be a travesty.

There is however a very great need for this land to remain green, provide Coventry with clean air and locals with a place to walk, enjoy nature and stay healthy.

This ePetition runs from 24/01/2021 to 28/03/2021.
