Now that we have entered a second lockdown, Brockworth Parish Council want to remind people that we are here to help if you need it. We have a team of volunteers who can help with shopping or picking up prescriptions if you are shielding. We can put you in touch with the Citizens Advice Bureau and other support services if you are struggling and are here if you need to talk to someone or need an emergency food parcel. Unfortunately, we have had to close the community centre to the public but the parish council is still operating as normal and we can be contacted by calling us on 01452 863123.
We would also welcome any new volunteers, so if you think you can help out, please contact us.
Petition against new housing planned for Brockworth
We are saying NO to more houses in Brockworth and have launched a petition to OBJECT to the planning application to build 49 homes on green fields north of Perrybook off Shurdington Road in Brockworth (20/00608/FUL) currently being considered by Tewkesbury Borough Council.
We urge local residents to sign our petition: NO to more houses in Brockworth here:
Alternatively you can sign the petition at the Community Centre or email comments direct to Tewkesbury Borough Council at: email@example.com (quoting 20/00608/FUL)
The Parish Council objects to this development on the following grounds:
• Loss of green space and damage to the environment
• Poor design and layout of the proposed development
• Poor access to services and facilities
• Drainage issues
• Highway safety, access to the development is dangerous and will increase congestion in the area
• Noise and air pollution from the neighbouring A417 and A46 junction
• Brockworth doesn't need anymore housing
In conclusion, we are against any further large scale development in Brockworth, which has already had its fair share of housing being built without the necessary infrastructure and community facilities and with the associated disruption and nuisance that large scale construction brings. We urge Tewkesbury Borough Council to refuse this application and protect Brockworth.
