Save Our Greenbelt - West of Quarry Drive & Planetreeyetts - Kilmacolm

Opposition to proposed plans to change land from Greenbelt to Residential, in fields at 'West of Quarry Drive' & 'Planetreeyetts' in Kilmacolm, Inverclyde, Scotland. If this is to be approved, this area of outstanding natural beauty, would be destroyed forever, to make way to build 52 private non affordable houses, (with only 10% required for social affordable housing), and with an option to increase this up to 200 private houses at the next development phase.
This area is currently used widely by the local community for activity and leisure, such as by people walking their dogs, rambling groups, children playing and discovering nature, and horses grazing. It's also the home to alot of natural wildlife.
Locals feel they weren't properly informed of these plans, and also that a building development would have no benefit to the village whatsoever. Reasons being the village infrastructure wouldn't cope, and the beautiful and unique character of the village would be lost forever!
There are also major concerns building on this Greenbelt would set a president in the village, as many other developers have already circled numerous other Greenbelt sites in village, and would be keen to destroy these areas for profit too!
We will keep this petition running until our Greenbelt and village is safe, and until it has been taken OFF the 'Preferred Option 1' hit list by Inverclyde Council. And when the proposal to change these beautiful fields from Greenbelt to Residential is REMOVED. Inverclyde Council will release their plans in March 2018.
We will also lobby Scottish Parliament to find out why their allowing so many Greenbelts to be built upon, and are encouraging councils to release Greenbelt land, when there are currently so many available Brownfield sites available.
We firmly believe Brownfield sites should be used up first for any future projected housing shortfalls, and regeneration on these areas should always be done first, before destroying more of our countryside.
Please sign our petition to help stop private profit based developers, and political policies, from destroying more of our beautiful Greenbelt, and our local communities that live in these areas!
