A petition against proposed housing development in Thornbury by the local campaign group TRAPP’D (Thornbury Residents Against Poorly Planned Development) has been signed by over 1,000 local people.  

It says the planning system has failed Thornbury because it could see up to 6,000 more houses being built.  It asks Housing Minister James Brokenshire MP to review the current planning process, which it says is biased in favour of speculative developers.  It also invites him to visit the town.  

Co-chairman of TRAPP’D, Roger Hall, said: “As Co-Chairman I would like to thank local residents who have added their overwhelming support to our call for help and we hope that the Housing Minister will give this letter his serious consideration.”

Thornbury residents can still add their names to the Petition at the Town Hall, Armstrong Hall or view the letter on the website at www.trappdgroup.weebly.com
