‘Thank you Chairman for giving me the opportunity to speak briefly to your committee.’
> ‘I would first and foremost like to thank Bramcote’s Neighbourhood Forum for its diligence and hard work as it comes close to completing its Neighbourhood Plan.’
> ‘Their consultation process of meetings and workshops totally around 20 in the last 18 plus months, most of which I have attended, giving Bramcote folk the opportunity to engage in the process have been second to none, so I commend in public the Steering group for their work so ably led By Paul Nathaniel.’>
> ‘I am, like the Forum much concerned to protect the Open Green Spaces in Bramcote as referenced in the Borough Councils Draft Part 2 Plan. That detail as such was clearly recognised by the Forum in their Part 2 consultation response.
> ‘Whilst we are advised that Local Green Spaces have the same protection as Greenbelt, nothing resonates more in the Public’s mind that protection of such open spaces as GREENBELT.’
> ‘I would therefore ask your Committee to submit in its Part 2 Plan proposals to the Inspectorate for their ‘consideration’ those remaining plots of Bramcote green spaces retain that Greenbelt defined status.’
> Finally to put very simply to underline my point, to take our beautiful Bramcote Park out of Greenbelt would in the Public’s mind be completely ‘Bonkers’
