Lee Sibley started this petition to Stroud district council

Forest Green Rovers plans are to build a new stadium Easington Gloucester. They’ve tried to present their plans to a Stroud District council committee for planning. The only party who rejected was the conservatives, they did this for clear arguments. That it will have a devastating impact on the wildlife as will increase pollution and congestion. The parish council for Easignton is also against the big development, due to a number of issues which they will find to have an major impact on the scenery.

Not just the councils are against but other agencies have also argued their valid and 100% correct points. However, Mr Vince decided to do another submission which will be around December or council be January time. They have already got an site already so whats wrong with that? What’s will be there next? Could it be houses or left to ruin.

This is over 5,000 capacity football stadium, I can’t even understand why the other councillors would allow such an eyesore which will ruin the great countryside. This is the proposal: 5,000 capacity football stadium and other ancillary uses (Use Class D2); two full-sized grass pitches and a goal practice area (Use Class D2); car parking for cars and coaches and highways improvements to the A419 including a signalised site junction and combined cycle/footway. All matters are reserved save for access.

Officer report concluded that: All the land currently has an agricultural use and is relatively flat and low-lying but gently undulates with a slight slope to the south towards the flood plain and River Frome beyond. The agricultural land has predominantly been used as grazing land by cattle and for cutting of hay.

This is no different to the incinerator which Stroud Council and others was against. The proposal now comprises the following development:
* A football stadium with a seating capacity for 5000 spectators * Two full size grass practice pitches
* One goal practice area
* A car park for 1700 vehicles.

We are saying no it’s should not be allowed to be built as will be damaging to environment and some of the lands is used for flood plains and its a rural area. So you will find an increase in pollution and bad air for the cattle and nearby farmers. Stroud council have some courtesy and compassion and reject this plan.

many organisation are against it just like me and others.... The revised Environmental Statement now comprises the following subject areas: * Archaeology and Cultural Heritage
* Ecology and Nature Conservation
* Flood Risk, Hydrology and Drainage
* Landscape and Visual Impact * Scio-economics
* Transport and Access
* Air Quality and Dust
* Lighting
* Noise and Vibration
* Climate Change
* Major Accident and Disasters
* Cumulative Effects
Officers are satisfied that the information submitted within the revised Environmental Statement is sufficient to consider the potential environmental impacts of the development.
