MP launches campaign to save Kingswinford Green Belt

Mike Wood, MP for Dudley South has launched a campaign to save Green Belt land at Kingswinford Triangle and Holbeache Lane after Black Country Plan proposals for more than 800 new homes across the two sites.

To coincide with the 8-week long public consultation on the Black Country Plan proposals, Mike Wood has teamed up with local councillors to launch an online petition against “irreversible damage” that would be done if current proposals were to go ahead. Speaking at the launch of the campaign, Mike said:

“The Black Country Plan proposes building across green spaces that are so important to our local community. Not only would this destroy Green Belt Land – but add unacceptable pressure to our local amenities, such as schools, roads and GPs.

“We do need to build more homes, but there has to be a ‘brownfield first’ development policy. This would rejuvenate unused land, provide the vital homes we need and leave our previous Green Belt intact.”

Residents can take part in the campaign and make their voices heard by signing the online petition and responding to the consultation which are both accessible through a new dedicated website at

As well as being able to sign the petition and respond to the consultation, residents will also be able to upload their own video outlining their reasons for opposing the proposals.

The Black Country Plan document itself is more than 700 pages long, so a Dudley Summary has also been made available on the campaign website.

Mike added: “We really do need people to sign this petition and take part in the consultation to make sure local people’s voices are heard and irreversible damage isn't done. So please sign the petition, respond to the public consultation and join our campaign to save our Green Belt, for our children and future generations to enjoy.”
