Press release: The Campaign to Protect Rural England is dismayed to learn that St Helens Council’s Planning Committee approved the Florida Farm development in protected Green Belt

Jackie Copley, Planning Manager said: “It appears there is no stopping motorway based big shed developments, irrespective of Green Belt protection, local objection, generation of unsustainable traffic patterns and harm to the environment. The cumulative impacts of similar developments in Wigan, St Helens, Chorley and Knowsley do not seem to have been fully considered. ”

The countryside charity remains unconvinced by claims by developer Bericote Properties, that 2,500 jobs will be created, excluding construction work. It believes the decision must be called in by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for the Department of Communities and Local Government, who has promised Green Belt land will be protected.
