Petition raised after Cheswick Green planning application is re submitted.

A 200-strong petition is due to be handed to Solihull Council against plans to build a new housing development on green

A 200-strong petition is due to be handed to Solihull Council against plans to build a new housing development on green

belt land near Cheswick Green.

Residents have reacted after the application for 57 houses and development of Shirley Golf Club, which was withdrawn two years ago, was re-submitted.

While the number of homes has been reduced, Councillor Ken Hawkins (Con, Blythe) said residents are still against any houses being built on the land.

“I am not against the golf club creating an academy and driving range. The club does some wonderful work with disabled youngsters and I will support this continuing, but the prospect of even more homes being built on greenbelt land in Blythe ward has to be resisted,” he said.

The planning application, made through Banner Homes Midlands Ltd, also seeks permission for the development of a golf academy with facilities for disabled golf.
