Slad Valley homes would cause "significant harm", says English Heritage
PLANS for 140 homes in Slad Valley will cause "significent harm" to a unique landscape, says English Heritage.
It has written to Stroud District Council to object to the planning application submitted by developer Gladman to build the houses on Baxter's Field, below Summer Street in Stroud.
English Heritage says its concerns about the proposal are "fundamental and unlikely to be overcome".
Campaigners from Slad Valley Action Group are warning about the impact on views from iconic Swifts Hill and have been asking visitors to the beauty spot to answer a survey.

"Views are one of the most important reasons people come here," said survey organiser Amanda Lawrence.
"Most are shocked when they realise how that view could change."
More than 600 objections to the plan have been registered with the council. The Black Book Cafe in Nelson Street is hosting an Objection Clinic on Sunday, from 1pm to 4pm, for people who oppose the plans.
