WARFIELD ACTION GROUP-No More Houses sign now

HELP OUR FIGHT TO KEEP WARFIELD GREEN! The aim of the group is to oppose the intended decimation of the parish, to preserve its identity and to stave off creeping suburbia. With little time to oppose Bracknell Forest Borough Council’s ill conceived plans we need your help…every signature really counts. Warfield is a semi rural Parish of thirteen hamlets and settlements it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The rural character of the area changed little over the years until the development of the nearby “New Town†by the Bracknell Development Corporation, set up by the Government in 1949. Since then there has been a constant battle to preserve Warfield against the threat of developers and planners. Gradually the tentacles of tarmac have extended out from Bracknell’s concrete heart, carrying suburbia deeper into the surrounding countryside. In 1983, under pressure from central Government, Berkshire County Council identified North East Bracknell as a location for 4000 new homes. There followed five years of vigorous campaigning by the councils of Warfield Parish and the Borough, local community groups and the newly formed Northern Parishes Action Group. Their demands, that no new houses be built on countryside between Warfield and Bracknell, was overruled by Nicholas Ridley, Secretary for State, in 1988. At that time Warfield had a population of a little over 1,700 (about the same as it was at the time of the Black Death, 1345-1351). Today (2006) it has risen to over 8,500, with the greater portion of this new population living in housing estates at the southern end of the Parish on land which previously marked the boundaries of parish and town. In the Spring of 2006, responding to directives from Central Government, Bracknell Forest Borough Council announced proposals to build over 10,000 New houses during the next 20 years…Land at Warfield was identified as suitable for use as “Urban Extensions†of the Borough-with plans to build 2,500 new homes…Such a development would increase the size of Warfield by 40% Open countryside at West End/Cabbage Hill-designated an Area of Special Landscape Importance - has come under threat and, with history seemingly repeating itself, residents have rallied round to form the WARFIELD ACTION GROUP.
