A campaign to save Poundfield from development is being launched this weekend.
Villagers have joined forces and created a ‘Save Poundfield’ campaign to protest against a development by Berkeley Homes. The developer held a public exhibition earlier this year over its plans to build 31 homes on the green space.
Fiona Hewer, chairman of Cookham Parish Council, said: “The Cookham Village Design Statement has recognised this land as an important green wedge.
“I personally feel it is the wrong location to consider development and I will be leading the discussion on this at the Parish Council on May 3.”
The launch will take place opposite Poundfield on Pony Field at 12.30pm on Saturday.
