The Green Gap cause is much more than a ‘local’ issue.
The loss of a strategic space between Town and Village would have lasting impact on the social, environmental and economic future of the broader area. And it would curtail the Council’s plans for a vibrant future for the District.
So it’s little wonder then that the Green Gap has been in the news this past week. The issues are big news. The momentous unanimous decision by SODC’s Planning Committee to throw out Grainger’s plans is big news. The community’s delight is big news too.
