We have objected to plans from Gladman Developments Ltd to build 262 houses on former common land at Plough Hill Road, Nuneaton, Warwickshire. The land is known as Galley Common and is of historical significance.
We are dismayed that it is proposed to develop this land. It will suburbanise this attractive area and spoil people’s enjoyment of three public footpaths in the vicinity. The development will destroy the historic integrity of the site, which was once common land. It was inclosed in the nineteenth century but the history of the site is written in its ancient hedgerows.
We have urged Nuneaton and Bedworth Council to reject the application.
