This website exists in support of the Save Our Cirencester campaign. We support sensible housing development in keeping with the size of a rural market town. We also appreciate the need for this country to be more self-sufficient in providing food for our population. We do not agree with wholesale development of farmland, whilst brownfield sites remain unexplored.
The group seeks to achieve a review of the Cotswold District Council’s intention to allow a significant housing development on existing farmland at Chesterton to the south side of the town.
It is felt that the development proposed, and its extent, will be detrimental to the market town and unsupportable by the infrastructure within which the town sits.
The presentation of the petition to Cotswold District Council and the related debate is now available on You Tube. It is split into two parts and is accessible via these links:
