In September 2021 the planning application for the BioPark was rightly rejected by the Council. However an appeal against that decision has been lodged with the Planning Inspectorate and a Planning Inquiry will take place. We must ensure the Planning Inspectorate comes to the same decision as the Council.
The Planning Inquiry will be a formal process with planning barristers, expert witnesses and around 8 days of evidence. Keep the G in WGC and the WGC Heritage Trust have therefore appointed a Planning Consultant to help put forward the best possible case and win.
We really need your help to fight the appeal. If it is successful it will allow the building of up to 9 storey high tower blocks on the site. The funds are needed urgently as the appeal process has already begun.
Please give as generously as you can to help us fight these proposals and safeguard what we love about this town.
Ebenezer Howard said "The people of the Garden City will not for a moment permit the beauty of their city to be destroyed by the process of growth. The town will grow, but it will grow in accordance with a principle which will result in this - that such growth shall not lesson or destroy, but ever add to its social opportunities, to its beauty, to its convenience."
