This is the field in Ottershaw which is currently home to a multitude of wildlife and which the council have now allocated to be developed. While housing is needed, green space for people and creatures is vital to our wellbeing. The people of Ottershaw were not asked where the development would be best placed. Runnymede B.C. chose this site instead of a more appropriate area which is nearer the shops and less valuable as a green space by the community.
Sadly, this development will go ahead and the indicative masterplan shows a very dense layout with little room set aside for social space and green corridors for wildlife. We must insist on adequate green space for people and the creatures which we live alongside.
