Stop the Wessex Fields Development

This petition had 592 supporters

The Environment Group Friends of Riverside strongly object to Bournemouth Borough Council’s proposals to build a flyover and access roads at the A338 and Wessex Fields, part of which would be within the Green Belt and Flood Plain at Riverside Avenue and Holdenhurst. We believe there must be a move to more sustainable travel solutions.

These proposed road developments would be seriously detrimental to the residents at Holdenhurst Village, at Townsend, the Retired Nurses Home, and in surrounding areas, would result in the loss of farm land and wildlife habitats, and greatly increase the number of vehicles in the area, with an unacceptable associated increase in noise, air, light and water-run off pollution, and increased flood risk due to development in the local Green Belt-Flood Plain

We need your help to ensure that our beautiful green spaces will be there for future generations to enjoy.
