Save Our Valley
Petition Background (Preamble):
Did you know that Brighton & Hove’s Green Council plans to allow a local green open space, Toads Hole Valley, to be concreted over and developed into Housing?
Due to changes to the planning law by the Coalition Government, a host of safeguards have been removed & replaced with a ‘presumption to build’. Gone, for example, are rules which prioritised brown-field sites first for development.
In light of these changes, the Green Council have perversely decided to give developers the green light to concrete over green space & build housing on Toads Hole Valley.
We are deeply opposed to these planning changes, as well as the Green Council’s plans to give the go-ahead for Toads Hole Valley to be concreted & built on.
That is why we are campaigning for Brighton & Hove’s Green Council to reverse their decision.
Locally, our own Toad’s Hole Valley is under threat of development, as has been highlighted in the local press.
We therefore urge Brighton & Hove’s Green Council to reject any plans for development on Toad’s Hole Valley, protecting its use for local residents, children and as a haven for wildlife.
