• Save Dungeness
    Dungeness is the UK's only official desert. Its flooded gravel pits are invaluable nature reserves. Its unique human geography has led it in recent years to become home to a thriving artistic community. In its wider context, The Romney Marsh is a timeless haven of ancient churches and marshland farming, which gave the world its particular breed of sheep. Allowing this expansion to go ahead is perverse and completely unnecessary with Manston capable of taking passenger jets and the Marsh infrastructure unsuited to a growth in road traffic. The developer's promise of jobs is a chimera as any possibilities for locals will be limited to a few cleaning and catering posts and will be outweighed by the losses in the tourist trade. This corner of an already overdeveloped south-east deserves to be valued; for its cultural, environmental and aesthetic importance. It's beauty may be unconventional but this makes its conservation so much more vital. Please support this petition.

  • Better, safer, people-friendly streets for Clapham Common
    This will allow local residents an opportunity to experience their streets and the common in a different way and see if it delivers the proposed benefits. On the basis of experience elsewhere, the changed layout should: Stop through motor traffic on Nightingale Walk and Windmill Drive Make a more quiet and pleasant local environment. Make it safer for local residents, and users of the common. Reduce pot holes If towards the end of the trial local residents feel that it has not been an improvement then it will be easy to re-instate the current layout. Worth noting that this approach has already gone through the system for a network of streets in Tooting. By end August we should know when it will be implemented. This approach is also supported by the Wandsworth Cycling Campaign (part of London Cycling Campaign - http://www.lcc.org.uk), and Wandsworth Living Streets (local group of Living Streets - http://www.livingstreets.org.uk).

  • Stop the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR)
    Economically this road will be a massive drain on local and national government resources and will not lead to any significant local stimulus. The NDR proposes to bring 'traffic relief' to the communities north and east of Norwich. However, there is no traffic congestion problem north and east of Norwich. Furthermore, the proposed road will destroy over 6,000 trees, will permanently take out large areas of productive farm land, it will permanently close numerous walking paths, tracks and rights of way and it will destroy habitats for bats, badgers, newts and many other species of animals and plants. This road development will also cause significant local air, water and noise pollution and will increase national and international carbon emissions which are leading to detrimental climate change. Local people do not want this road and as we continue to struggle in these austere times it seems ludicrous to even contemplate spending a proposed £90.7 million (probably more) on a road that goes nowhere and one that will lead to significant environmental destruction, habitat loss and the scarring of a beautiful part of East Anglia.

  • Stop Fracking in Cheshire West and Chester
    Horizontal hydraulic fracturing, ‘fracking’, is a way of extracting oil and/or gas. Water, sand and toxic chemicals are injected at high pressure into underground rocks to shatter them. This releases the gas/oil which can be collected. But investing in carbon-intensive fossil fuels is a distraction from the need to decarbonise our electricity supply. And it's hazardous. Studies show that fracking pollutes water supplies (with arsenic and lead), causes earthquakes, and spoils local communities. And there are nightmare stories coming form the States. Like in the town of Dimock, PA, residents have reported their water turning so brown that it stains crockery. Their water was later found to contain methane, and a host of toxic chemicals. But it gets worse. "My son had sores up and down his legs from the water." " My daughter... would have to get out the of the shower and lay on the floor." Those are the words from Greg Saunter, a local resident, whose water supply was shut off for his own good. He cannot shower in his own home. Or drink water out of his taps. Fracking has ruined his life. It cannot happen here. We call on the council to preserve the quality of life of its residents, and reject all planning applications for fracking.
