A hardy group of Stand Against Lodge Farm Village campaigners recently braved the blustery December weather and made their way to the trig point (just outside the village of Barby) that overlooks the Leam Valley, including the site of the proposed Lodge Farm Village development.

At the trig point, overlooking the Leam Valley

The Leam Valley will be irrevocably spoilt if the unsustainable, undeliverable and unsupported Lodge Farm Village development goes ahead.

As we move towards the end of the second Consultation period offered by Rugby Borough Council on the Draft Local Plan, it is worthwhile re-doubling and re-focusing all of our efforts to oppose Lodge Farm Village (DS10).

You can continue to oppose Lodge Farm Village in a number of ways:

  • E-mail ALL Rugby Borough Councillors to express your opposition to the inclusion of Lodge Farm Village in the Draft Local Plan. The Councillors will not see the thousands of individual objections that have already been filed, so it is very worthwhile to make your views to our elected representatives known. You can find a list of e-mail addresses for all Councillors here and you may find this recent letter from David Thompson (SALFV Chairman) to the Councillors a useful reference on many of the key objections to Lodge Farm Village.
  • File additional objections to the inclusion of Lodge Farm Village (DS10) in the Draft Local Plan. Our objection guide can be found here and can be used to object on aspects of DS10 that you may not have had the chance to cover in the first Consultation.
  • Support the campaign financially. Beyond the second Consultation, significant funding is required to cover the planning consultants and lawyers who will be needed for SALFV to maintain effective opposition to Lodge Farm Village. Click here to donate to the campaign.
