Blighted by a massive corridor of oversized industrial units at Markham Vale and acres upon acres to be born in the Seymour area near Staveley boasting of local jobs.

Access and link roads severing the countryside into jigsaw pieces, we hope it’s all going to be worth it.

A message to our local councils and those developers - our green spaces, woodlands and hedgerows deserve foremost value for the clean air we breathe, ecological assets and the general wellbeing of our community. Please don’t take them all.
