It has come to our attention that retrospective planning permission has been sought to change the use of buildings at Woodlands Farm between Hill and Ham from storage to distribution. Any distribution that would happen would involve sending lorries along route 41, a fairly narrow and twisty country lane. As part of the National Cycle Network it is used by many cyclists of different ages and abilities and forms a vital North to South link avoiding the A38.
You are able to find out more about the plan from Stroud District Council www.stroud.gov.uk/apps/planning and the reference is S.16/1565/VAR. Any objections to the planning application need to be made by 31st August. Please make your voice heard and object via SDC website. Please share this information with any others who may be interested.
