More than 10,000 signatures submitted against green belt plans

Mike Wood, Member of Parliament for Dudley South, local councillors and local campaign groups have spent the last 8 weeks rallying support against “damaging” and “irreversible” elements of the Black Country Plan which propose building hundreds of new homes on green fields in the Dudley South constituency.

The largest proposal within the plans could see 863 homes built on Green Belt land at the Kingswinford Triangle and Holbeache Lane in Kingswinford North and Wall Heath. 175 further houses are proposed for green spaces off Severn Drive and Bryce Road in Pensnett and off Lapwood Avenue at Crestwood Park.

Thanks to a united effort by the team, a collective target of more than 10,000 signatures has been achieved and signatures were submitted to DMBC planners by Mike, Kingswinford North & Wall Heath councillors and the Wall Heath As One community campaign group on the final day of the official 8-week-long consultation period.
