Green Squeeze - fighting to protect the Erewash countryside

Who are Green Squeeze?

We are an independent campaign group of local people from the Derbyshire borough of Erewash.  We came together after proposals were unveiled to develop the redundant Stanton Iron Works site.  These proposals will have a dramatic effect on the local area and for many miles around.

What does this mean for you?

  • Dangerous traffic chaos will result as the new town dwellers will ‘rat run’ through Sandiacre, Stapleford, Stanton by Dale, Dale Abbey, Risley, Trowell, Kirk Hallam and Bramcote to access Nottingham and Derby. Our existing HGV problems will be made far worse.
  • Green Squeeze is campaigning for a sustainable new community that prioritises jobs over housing – a flagship to be proud of that will endure for future generations.

What can you do?

You can help us further by finding material for the website, exchanging ideas with similar protest groups, volunteering any specialist skills, coming to our meetings, supporting fund raising events or donating to the campaign.

Thank you for your continued support.
