New hearing in legal battle over Bushfield Down

Romsey Advertiser: New hearing in legal battle over Bushfield Down New hearing in legal battle over Bushfield Down

THE saga over the status of Bushfield Down near Winchester moves to the Court of Appeal in London next month.

Winchester resident Barbara Guthrie and the Bushfield Down Supporters Group are attempting to have it given town and village green status which would strengthen its protection from development.

The owners, the Church Commissioners, are resisting that attempt and have appealed against a High Court decision in June 2013 that ruled the county council had followed the correct procedure.

The hearing has been listed for the appeal court on February 5-6.

Mrs Guthrie said she hoped the court would reject the Church Commissioners’ action, opening the way for a public inquiry into the application.

Good luck Bushdown Supporters Group - let's fly in the face of current building madness and powerfully support green spaces together.Instead of all the dissonant groups and disenchanted folk we need to form a single group supporting Winchester's Greenspaces(perhaps called the same).Otherwise we'll all be living in the concrete, stone and clay bowl surrounded and imprisoned by roads and oppressed by traffic -developers and politicians are all too willing to sell soul and beauty.Make Bushdown a protected park for all of the community and stand up against this creeping death.
