Local Referendum in Dinnington

Dinnington residents will get their chance to express their views on whether or not the town’s green belt boundaries should be re-drawn to allow developers to build 1500 new houses in the area over the next 15 years.

Removing some of Dinnington’s countryside from the green belt would allow 940 homes to be built on fields currently used for recreational walking and cycling by local people for decades. The Miner’s Welfare ground could also be lost to house building.

The remaining 600 houses would be built on brownfield sites.

We believe that 1500 homes is far too much and a far more sustainable figure would be less than half that number. This would also mean green belt would not be required.

The Referendum is a Parish Poll and all residents of Dinnington parish can vote. It will be held on May 9th at the following locations:

Dinnington Resource Centre

Dinnington St Joseph’s  School

Monksbridge Community Centre

Voting is from 4pm to 9pm, please come along and have your say!

    Hi, so you know where Laughton Common village and its resident come into this as we are under Thurcroft Parish council not Dinnington town Council, but we also come under Rother Valley South area?
