Staveley's meadow has been agricultural land for centuries and is an iconic feature of the Staveley Landscape. It is currently classified as local green space and in a conservation area which means it has the highest level of protection. The meadow is now at risk of having its status changed by the LDNPA to allow mixed used development as part of their 'Call for sites'.
The owner of the meadow has requested it be change from local green space to "Mixed Use" a definition of this is below.....
"Mixed-use development is a type of urban development that blends residential, commercial, cultural, institutional, or entertainment uses, where those functions are physically and functionally integrated, and that provides pedestrian connections. Mixed-use development can take the form of a single building, a city block, or entire neighbourhoods. The term may also be used more specifically to refer to a mixed-use real estate development project—a building, complex of buildings, or district of a town or city that is developed for mixed-use by a private developer, (quasi-) governmental agency, or a combination thereof."
We want to fight this change to allow Staveley to keep this beautiful place for people to enjoy, including our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
