We have objected to a planning application for 18 dwellings and associated works in the village of Glasbury on the River Wye in Powys.
The society is concerned that the development would be on land which has customarily been enjoyed by the public for informal recreation and that it will also affect public paths.
The development would destroy the former Glasbury School playing-fields which have long been enjoyed by local people for recreation. It is possible that residents can register the land as a village green, to secure their rights and protect the land from development.
The development would also interfere with a public footpath which is on the official map, and other paths which have not yet been recorded.
The public will suffer if this development goes ahead; their rights of access and recreation will be diminished and the beauty of this lovely area scarred.
We have urged Powys County Council to reject this damaging proposal.
