Call to the Church of England to reconsider its decision to develop arable land between Titchmarsh and Thrapston, Northamptonshire
The Church of England Diocese of Peterborough has agreed to sell an option for the development of 114 acres of land between Titchmarsh and Thrapston (between the A605 and Ranway). The intended change of use from farming to industrial and logistics will effectively eliminate the green space which currently lies between the two ancient communities and undermine the integrity of Titchmarsh as a self-standing and thriving rural village.
We the undersigned call on the Bishop of Peterborough and his administration to reverse their decision, and their policies, to protect the integrity of Titchmarsh and other village communities and to halt the transformation of the Church of England into a property development company.
