Jaguar Landrover have served notice for a change of use for our Sportsfield and Club, this is currently classed as open green space that is used for 22 Football Teams and a Rugby Team. JLR want to change the Sportsfield into a Car Park for Employees. Ultimately, in 2022, the Social Club will be closed to expand this Car Park.
The Land Rover Sports and Social Club was created by the Land Rover employees to be used as a social meeting place and a place to enjoy shows with the family and engage with sports such as football, rugby, snooker, darts and the many other clubs that use the club such exercise programmes, dancing, keep fit etc etc. There are also many events held at the club that are attended by residents and members and employees of JLR. 100’s of people pass through the club every single week.
This is the only open green space on the Damson wood estate and is used every day by the residents. Years ago another application was rejected for housing under the terms this was an open green space. Let’s keep it that way!
Please sign our petition in order to make them hear our objections to changing the use of this land. Our Community needs to retain its green spaces and allow our thriving teams and clubs to continue with full use all of the facilities.
