We are delighted that Slad Valley is not going to be developed and that Gladman lost their appeal over this beautiful local site. Former representative for the Valley ward SDC seat, Molly Scott Cato, fought hard to protect this space, while many other Greens contributed to the inquiry. We are committed to doing everything we can to protect this iconic landscape for the future. Development should happen where it is needed and wanted, not to make unsustainable profits for the few.
Our candidate for the Valley ward by-election – Martin Baxendale – is committed to doing everything he can to protect this landscape from any future attempts at predatory development. We need to be re-using our brownfield sites to revitalise the town centre instead.
