More details from petition creator

We are concerned residents who urge the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to reject the proposed Planning application Ref: 12/00866/FULL This is the second time we have called on your support to stop development on this important green space within the Furze Platt Conservation Area. The first application was rejected unanimously by the Councillors. We now need an even greater level of support to stop any development now or in the future. The proposed development will:- 1. Add significantly to traffic congestion on Linden Avenue and increase the risks to children going to and from local schools. 2. Introduce a totally inappropriate housing estate right into the heart of the existing Furze Platt Triangle Conservation Area. 3. Add significant pressures to the ability of local schools to accept children from the catchment area. 4. Damage the local ecology with up to thirty trees being destroyed. The site is home to a wide variety of wildlife. With the proposal to develop the Furze Platt Secondary School in the future this green space becomes even more important. 5. Add a precedent to build more homes in back gardens and encourage house demolition in the area.
