As at 17 December, the petition has attracted 924 signatures and the number is still growing. There is also now a map being shared showing the total of proposed new houses for Ascot.
We understand that a local resident has set up a petition against proposals to build 350 houses in the Green Belt on the South side of Ascot High Street and the open space (currently Car Park 6) on the North side of the High Street.
The petition calls on the Royal Borough to NOT release this land from the Green Belt in the new Borough Local Plan and to remove this site from their allocated sites for housing.

It is the NPDG’s view that what is being currently proposed by the Ascot landowners consortium for the building of 350 new houses here is totally unacceptable and NOT in accordance with our Neighbourhood Plan.
