Campaigners have pledged to fight plans for 1,300 homes on 284 acres of greenbelt land in Wolverhampton. The new development near Penn Common would stretch from Colton Hills Community School, the Beacon Centre in Sedgley, The Barley Mow Pub and Penn Golf Club. There have been no formal planning applications made so far, but developers have been invite to submit proposals by Wolverhampton Council.
Stuart Anderson, the prospective Conservative parliamentary candidate for Wolverhampton South West, said: “Once this is gone it cannot be replaced. It is greenfield site, it is beautiful.
"Wolverhampton has enough brownfield sites where we can build. We have got enough spaces to put that amount of houses around Wolverhampton.”
