Buckinghamshire Unitary Council is applying to the Secretary of State to dispose of land and buildings at Mansfield Farm and the Round Coppice Estate. Comprising more than 200 acres of Iver Heath's Green Belt, this site is predominantly farmland spanning from the A412 down to Slough Road, wraps around the Iver Environment Centre and sits both sides of the M25.
Our three Bucks Unitary Councillors, our Parish Councillors and Colne Valley Regional Park - as well as some neighbouring authorities - are fighting this land sale. If the Secretary of State gives his approval, the decision could be the final hurdle in allowing the new Welcome Break M25 Services to be built as well as opening the door for developers to put in planning applications for what's left of that piece of Green Belt. Already, 1.500 trees are at threat of being removed; the Iver Environment Centre - used by so many adults and children every year - may cease to be viable; there is a serious threat to our air quality degrading ... and that's just the start of it.
We urge as many of you as possible to write to Michael Gove and object. He has to have your hard copy objection on his desk by 31st October 2023 latest. Click here for more information and clear instructions on how to write your letter.
Please act NOW. Ask your neighbours to do the same. We need as many residents as possible to get behind this campaign as once this Green Belt land has gone, there will be no getting it back.
