A new threat to Slad Valley – Baxter’s Fields

Baxter’s Fields below Summer street provide the crucial link between the busy town of Stroud and the world famous Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that includes the Slad Valley. The Gladman development company is in the process of developing an application to concrete them over with up to 150 new homes - blighting the beauty of the AONB for ever as well as resulting in massive extra traffic on roads that are already struggling to cope
There is a new website for the action group opposing this development – please go and look at   - and join their Facebook group – just search for save slad valley in facebook.

Wades Farm Application Rejected!

I am delighted to report that Stroud District Council Development Committee have followed the planners recommendation and have unanimously rejected the plans by Barratts to build at Wades Farm.

Can I thank everyone for your support, including the SSUD committee, the members of the SSUD who helped deliver leaflets, the members who manned the stall in Stroud, The Summerstreet Residents Association and the many people who supplied photographs to us, including Alex Caminades.  Can I also thank those who sent to us lots of idea, which were very useful in our defence.  If I have missed anyone off this list, please accept my apologies, but our thanks go to you as well!

Here is breaking news from Stroud New and Journal.  Further reports will be in Stroud Life and also the Sunday Times this week-end.

We do expect Barratts to appeal against this decision, but rest assured, we will fight them all the way!
