Planning proposals will take the green out of Hall Green

Cllr Sam Burden and Cllr Barry Bowles are both very concerned about the coalition plans to relax planning controls and the impact that this may have on Hall Green.

The Government intends to consult on a three year relaxation of planning rules on extensions for both residential and business premises. This proposals would mean that extensions of 6 metres could be built without any planning permission required. For the leafy suburb of Hall Green, this could have disastrous effects and potentially destroy the local area and cause misery to residents.

Although the Lib Dems have in the past appeared to value the local environment, Nick Clegg seems to be in full support of the Tory proposals.

Our councillors will be writing to the Local Communities Minister, Eric Pickles to set out their concerns on behalf of Hall Green residents….watch this space
