Michole Jeynes started this petition to tewkesbury borough council

Pamington is a very small hamlet with currently only around 40 homes, consisting primarily of elderly residents and families with young children. The road that passes through is access only, but despite this, a large amount of traffic passes through illegally posing significant danger to the residents. The road is a single narrow lane with many blind corners and simply cannot withstand anymore traffic, especially given how many people speed through as it is. For vehicles to pass each other requires one to pull onto the very narrow grass verges or onto peoples properties Despite this, a planning application has been submitted for an additional 150 houses (potentially 300 cars) of which they would be able to gain access. 

The residents are so fearful of what the outcome will be due to how severe the sitution already is.

The highways agency has suggested that only double the traffic would be increased, which is not only unacceptable given that the road cannot withstand it (or could be adjusted to it) but this suggestion is unrealistic as it only factored in commuting routes. Planning for football pitches amongst other small projects have all been rejected for this reason in the past but now it is a big development being proposed, they appear to have changed their minds.

It is a completely unnecessary place for a development, especially of its size, but due to a shortfall of housing supply in the area it is actually being considered. Normally it wouldn't have stranded a chance. There is also much more land in the area which is much more suitable to housing, and wouldn't impact the same on the local community.
