Shifnal residents object to the December 2020 draft of Shropshires local plan for Shifnal

This petition had 2,234 supporters


We the residents of Shifnal wish to register our objection to the December 2020 draft of the Shropshire local plan for Shifnal and its surrounding area for the following 5 reasons
1
Insufficient consideration has been made of the planned removal of land from the Greenbelt. The evidence cited for the removal of land from the Greenbelt is factually incorrect and insubstantial
2
The level of new strategic residential allocations would change the character of Shifnal as a place to live to the detriment of existing residents and the setting of the town
3
Infrastructure such as roads, schools and medical facilities would be insufficient to support the proposals by Shropshire Council and no assessment of these has been made
4
Employment allocation of 41 hectares providing about 1,750,000 sq ft of space is excessive especially as there are better sites for employment use within a 10 mile radius of Shifnal
5
Shropshire Council have not been proactive, positive or collaborative in their approach to preparing the local plan
