Stop SGC’s primary focus is to Stop the Selwood Garden Community development and the damage it will cause to the environment and the impact it will have on the local area. While we wait for the planning application for SGC we are encouraging our supporters to write to the members of the Mendip Planning Board to inform them of their objections to the plan. To help we have compiled what we believe to be the 8 main reasons to oppose this colossal development.
Further to SGC there are a number of development proposals in Frome and it’s surrounding area that do not deliver for the needs of the area or the planet. Stop SGC believes that while Frome needs houses they should be the right houses in the right place; supported by urgent improvements to the local infrastructure (schools, medical facilities, local employment etc).
Two of these the FR3a development and Sandy’s Hill Lane are physically linked to the proposed SGC site and Stop SGC has been actively involved in objecting to the proposals for these sites.
