FLATTENING OF THE OLDBURY ‘GREEN’ CORRIDOR (Ref. DC/19/63297)
As a resident who is situated within walking distance of the M5, Junction 2 and various different factories / industrial estates, we are already subjected to high levels of air pollution. I could reference hundreds of research papers that conclude that greenery significantly improves air quality in built up areas. Therefore, in a time where we are more environmentally conscious than ever, I am appalled at the planning application to Sandwell MBC to allow Canmoor (Oldbury) Ltd (which is actually in London) working on behalf of ASDA (Oldbury) to destroy this green corridor and build an industrial unit the size of a football pitch in its place. I argue that your rationale demonstrates an utter disregard for, not only the residents, but also the wildlife that inhabit this space and have done for hundreds of years.
This demonstrates a clear lack of respect you have for the residents, the impact on already over congested roads and more importantly the hundreds of species of wildlife effected by this decimation.
"WITHOUT A HABITAT THERE IS NO WILDLIFE"
We here-by completely and utterly disapprove of this application.
