“It has been advised to allow extra time for journeys, or to find alternate routes, or modes of travel where possible.” The work is likely to take months and will be from 7am to 7pm .

MAPP Middlesbrough Alternative Planning Partnership We have been working with other groups in what we called Green Summit and have now renamed to properly reflect all  we, in several groups, are doing together.  Immensely helpful collaboration strengthened our  representations on the Middlesbrough Local Plan      http://bit.ly/2E2yleu      We are disappointed to put it mildly, that the Council seems to be working towards this new Plan when it will be some months before the Planning Inspector approves it; asks for modifications; or indeed rejects it.

LEGAL ADVICE – we have been in touch with the Calderstones Park Action Group in Liverpool that recently won a judicial review against the Council that wanted to build luxury homes in a park! We have sent our challenges to their barristers.

We have also collectively started a new petition which we would encourage community members to sign and share – its all about our future and the future of our children.

The new petition is at https://www.change.org/p/planning-inspector-and-the-ceo-of-mbc-stop-selling-off-our-green-spaces-heritage-assets-for-housing
