Save green space adjacent to Telford Town Park from housing

This petition had 217 supporters


Losing green space adjacent to the award winning Telford Town Park for just two houses to be built will impact the wildlife and an adjacent Local Nature Reserve.

Wrekin Housing Trust has applied for permission to build 2 houses in Aqueduct Lane (planning application reference: TWC/2021/0191).

The Friends of Telford Town Park are vehemently against this application and are petitioning for the Trust to instead offer the land back to Telford & Wrekin Council - subject to it being incorporated into the Telford Town Park Local Nature Reserve.

This plot has lain undisturbed for over 20 years and we think it would be a travesty to rip it up for 2 small houses when there are many brownfield sites in Telford - this does not need to be touched.

If it did become part of the award winning Telford Town Park Local Nature Reserve it would be managed and maintained, but largely left as it is with plants and wild flowers for use by birds, common newts, and other animals.

With so much other housing nearby adjacent to Telford Town Park, The Friends of Telford Town Park feel this application goes too far and this area needs to be protected.
