Calling it 'urban green space' is no protection

IN respect of the fight to save Hayslan Field, don't rely on it being an urban green space.

A small field backed on to by Tennyson Drive, Cedar Avenue, and the Grove School was also designated an urban green space.

Despite many objections, a planning application was pushed through. So what was once a pleasant, quiet field in an already built-up area will soon be a building site.

We warned at the time that if this planning application succeeded then other small, green areas in Malvern would soon be under threat.

Point proven, I fear.

Nimbys!!!!!!!!! People have to live somewhere and Malvern is not exactly short of open access land for public recreational use; in fact we are completely spoilt in that respect. Try living in Wolverhampton Ms Gunton. Berfore Tennyson Drive, Cedar Avenue, and the Grove School were built the land there too was open fields.

Flawed argument Buffon. There are many other places to build houses and developers are flouting relaxation of planning restrictions to get approval where previously would not even considered.

Worcestershire needs a new market town away from this aonb. Take a look from the beacon at Malvern and it's becoming one massive housing estate.....not quite the well preserved Victorian town

It is perfectly true that there are many other places to build houses but I can guarantee that "Not-in-my-back-yard
ers" will appear lout of k nowhere at the slightest hint that houses might be proposed in there particular locality, and with perfectly reasoned arguments about why their site is the wrong one.
