A letter from Martin Chilcott - Chair of Protect Rural Peterborough

I Chair Protect Rural Peterborough fighting the City Council local Plan and its inclusion of Great Kyne a 2,500 houses + industrial/commercial usage north of the A47 near Castor , Ailsworth, Upton and Sutton and within a stones throw of Castor Hanglands. HCA, (Homes & Communities Agency) supposed stewards of the land,  are pushing for 5,000! As well as destroying some of Peterborough best rural landscape, it will change the way of life in the villages, not just of castor Ailsworth, Sutton and Upton. Weve made a short film (8 mins) to show what would be lost forever.

4 times the size of Castor & Ailsworth, i will also create 4,000 (8,000 if HCA have their way) additional cars, which are likely to have an effect on surrounding villages all the way to Stamford and on access to the City from the West.

 

If you’ve already signed the petition on the PRP website, thanks very much. If you haven’t managed to yet, it takes 30 seconds and every time an entry is submitted, your Ward Councillors get an e mail automatically saying you’ve signed. Encourage your friends elsewhere in Peterborough to support the campaign, then their ward Councillors will get an e mail in the same way. We want to make sure that this is a Peterborough wide issue for when all 60 Council members discuss and vote in September/ October on the City Council local Plan, which at the moment includes the 2,500 houses + industrial units.
