Protecting YOUR Green Belt
Pogmoor – Gawber – Redbrook – Barugh Green – Higham
Barnsley MBC is considering major plans for Urban Developments around Barnsley.
Formal consultation will not start until June, but overleaf is an indication of the
current proposals for YOUR area.
Potential developers are actively pursuing these proposals BUT local residents’
views & concerns are currently being ignored.
If these plans are allowed to proceed there will be the following adverse effects: –
Loss of valuable agricultural land
Loss of recreational access to the countryside
Adverse effects on wildlife
Loss of village character (especially Barugh Green & Higham) in the growth of
Barnsley’s urban sprawl
Significant noise and environmental pollution during years of construction and
after the works are completed
Invasion of privacy and devaluation of existing property values
Increased pressure on local roads during and after construction
Increased pressure on local infrastructure – Schools, Medical, Shops etc.
These are just some of our concerns – we need as many residents as possible to
help fight badly thought out proposals.
Remember – once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. Join us on the 21st to find out
more about the issues and how you can help protect your environment.
For further information, please contact: –
Telephone: 07960 756419 (there may not be an immediate response, but we’ll know you’ve
called and will call you back)
We have 1500 of these to deliver so any help would be much appreciated
