Welcome to the campaign dedicated to stopping Gladman Developments’ plan to spoil the beautiful and unique Georgian town of Bewdley by the River Severn.

Gladman are attempting to gain outline planning permission to build an estate of nearly 200 houses on the North-West edge of the town in countryside loved and enjoyed by both residents and tourists alike for generations. The plan will take away an ancient coffin path across historic farmland with unrivalled pristine views of the Wyre Forest SSSI and the Severn Valley.

Local residents have banded together to form this campaign group to fight this unwanted and speculative proposal.

This development does not fit with either the Bewdley Neighbourhood plan or Wyre Forest's local plan.
We believe that the local infrastructure is incapable of supporting development in this particular area, especially the roads through the centre of town, which is a conservation area.

 'Bewdley says No to Gladman' are not against housing development in the town. We understand the need for new housing, but it must be sustainable. The proposed Gladman development does not fall into this category.
