Gladman Developments Protest

Say No To Gladman in Braughing
SATURDAY 18 October saw a spectacular and moving event in St Mary the Virgin, Braughing. The remembrance service honoured the men of Braughing who were killed in the 1914 - 1918 conflict, and those who returned home.

Following the service The Braughing Local History Society launched its latest book in the series 'Braughing at War'. The Last Post, written by Peter Boylan, tells the story of Freddy Longman of UpHall and skillfully illumiates one mans short life and the utter tradegy and futility of war. The picture below shows the 23 red ribbons and 106 gold ribbons representing the lives lost and the men who returned - not all unscathed.

UpHall

A very clear message from Braughing residents has been sent to EHDC planning department - we do not want the proposed land development.

The community is up-in-arms about the proposal from professional land promoter, Gladman Developments, to develop the land by the river Quin between Gravelly Lane and Hay Street. This beautiful part of the village is a haven for wildlife giving pleasure to the community and visitors alike. Walkers come from miles around to enjoy this peaceful and tranquil area and it is a vital part of the rural landscape and a great educational asset to the local school and our children.

Gladman partner with landowners who are looking to obtain residential consent, at minimal risk and in a short timescale. So we suffer from the absentee landowner who does not live in our community any more and will not be affected. Gladman say they take ‘a proactive approach’ to ‘strategic land’ ‘optimising the value of potential residential development land. Gladman Homes LLP is the contracting company associated with Gladman Development Ltd.
