Deleted User It has been bought to our attention that The Hayloft site could be included in the Cheltenham urban area. As long term residents of The Reddings (over 30 years) this has always been a semi-rural area. Over the years there has been a lot of change alone to our area, but in recent times in a very surreptitious way. It is a disgrace that these builders are allowed to ride rough shod over everyone in their efforts to get their way. Now it appears that they are attempting to get in by the back door. They should not be allowed to get away with it. 23 Mar 2017 11:23

D J Mills Regarding ‘The Hayloft- The Reddings’, it is with some concern I learn that this site may at some time be included in the urban area of Cheltenham.
As I understand, this property has been the subject of several planning proposals, and building alteration which do not always bear a resemblance, and that the ‘site’ cannot now be returned to its original appearance.
As such it is worrying what final appearance and usage will result, and that this could lead to further urban dwelling development, possibly encroaching on green belt.
Please tread with care our consideration of this rural area and its residents, both human and wild!

Andy Sawers As a local resident in the Reddings, where we are keen to preserve the Green Belt barrier between Cheltenham and Churchdown, I am writing to object to the proposal for the status of this property to be changed from the Green Belt to the existing principle urban boundary.

Such a change would be detrimental to the local community as:

• The field itself floods frequently during heavy rain and construction on the site would lead to increased run off of rainwater onto the nearby roads
• The site is right on the edge of this Green Belt area where recent planning applications have been turned down as inappropriate within the existing Green Belt
• A change of this nature would lead to a dangerous precedent to other “vulnerable land” in the area
• The change of status would give no benefit to the local residents
• Any future development on the site would lead to significant increase in traffic flows alongside a road junction which already has restricted views
• The site already has planning permission for the extension of the existing property and this in itself is more than sufficient

Deleted User I would like to comment on a change to the existing urban area boundary in the Cheltenham Plan. This is the inclusion of the site 'The Hayloft' in the Reddings, which is listed in Appendix F.

I am strongly opposed to this change, as it is nibbling further away at our precious green belt. No reason is given in the Plan why greenbelt status should be removed from this site, and I do not feel it should be. I recently contacted the planning department because I was concerned that development was underway on this site which had not been approved. Greenbelt protections should not be chipped away because it is easier to fall in line with what developers wish to do.
