Context to Suggested Objection 2

In 2018 Shropshire Council assessed 33 potential Church Stretton sites These sites came out of the earlier ‘call for sites’ exercise.

The 33 sites were subject to a Sustainability Appraisal. The items covered by the Sustainability Appraisal were things like - distance from schools; distance from GP; flooding issues; brownfield site; landscape sensitivity etc. A (+) or (-) score was given to each sustainability issue assessed and then the sites were rated Good, Fair or Poor.

Snatchfield scored -7 (although the score should have been even worse than this). In other words, Snatchfield FAILED Shropshire Council’s own Sustainability Assessment.
