Green bid to stave off 500 new homes

Campaigners fighting to protect land outside Alfreton earmarked for 500 new homes want the site designated as a Town Green and a haven for wildlife.

Alfreton SOS member Alan Stanbrook said: “The area has been used by generations of Alfreton people for many years for recreation and other activities. In planning terms it is Alfreton’s Green Lung but to locals it is a priceless area of greenery which will be lost if the developers have their way.”

The group wants residents to provide evidence the land is, and has been, well-used to support their bid. For more visit or 01773 831049 or
