Protect our property values!
A PETITION calling on the Government to protect South Gloucestershire green belt signed by thousands of residents has been presented to Parliament. Labour's housing targets for the area are being scrapped by the coalition but a raft of unpopular planning applications in rural areas have sparked concerns that beauty spots could be threatened before new rules come in. "Petitioners are concerned by attempts to build inappropriate development on the green belt and note that green belt sites have faced applications to build housing which have consistently been opposed by local residents, locally elected councillors and the Member of Parliament."
