You can make a REAL difference

Thank you to everyone in the community that kindly sent in a letter objecting to the proposed Willson Developments application to build 350 homes south of Foxley Lane and west of Murrell Hill Lane.

Bracknell Forest Council received a HUGE number of objections and as a response to this number of objections, we will have the opportunity to speak, as a community at the planning committee when this application is heard and decided upon.

BINFIELD VILLAGE PROTECTION SOCIETY (BVPS) are fundraising within the local community to raise enough money to put together a detailed professional traffic consultation for the village and highly experienced legal representation to try and ensure this planning application goes no further.

ANY amount you could donate to towards making this happen as a community would be incredible. This is our opportunity to help protect this RURAL area, the HISTORY and the WILDLIFE from unsustainable development.

It will affect not just the residents of Binfield but those who come from further afield to enjoy Murrell Hill.

Thank you for your support
