• Keep access open from Waggon and Horses Lane onto Elm Hill, Norwich
    Norwich City Council is running an experiment to protect the house on Elm Hill from being scraped by high sided vans. The experiment closes the road at the join on Waggon and Horses Lane to Elm Hill. We are concerned about the safety of pedestrians on Elm Hill and Princes Street as further traffic will be pushed down this route. Also, vehicles reversing the length of Waggon and Horses Lane to make an exit on to Tombland, a busy bus route. Protection of the building is vital as is the safety of pedestrians. We feel a height restriction would be a better solution which would protect the particular building with less impact on the surrounding area.

  • De-power Scottish Natural Heritage
    To keep a balance for all who live or use the environment. Also to protect more those species that are on the endanger list from extinction and full information has to be giving to justify why species that are protected have to killed. So that we in the future are not asking questions why species that are still depleting partly due to licenses being issues and also toughen up the laws on those who kill protected species illegally.

  • Twenty two trees
    The Rossmere Park Island has the only breeding colony of Egrets in the whole county. If these birds move on because of the disturbance on the Island they will not come back. Not only do these trees add to the character of the park, they form a vital part of the local ecology for the Park’s large Bat colony.

  • Introduce a mining exhibition at Snibston Colliery
    It is important to keep the mining heritage alive around Leicestershire. The miners and their families are passionate about having their heritage continued.The council should make sure there is an exhibition of all the mining works and tours of the mining shaft. The history that surrounds Snibston Colliery is truly remarkable as George Stephenson and his son Robert Stephenson were very much part of the setting up and sinking of a shaft at Snibston in Coalville, therefore it is important that we keep this legacy going. In 2015 it was very sad when the Snibston Discovery Park was demolished, a lot of people fought to keep this alive. It was an amazing exhibition with hands on products for children to see and had an auditorium for films etc. The place now looks very derelict with only the Century Theatre.

  • Don't give Trump planning permission
    Trump wants to build 500 “luxury” houses on a protected Aberdeenshire coast. These homes will be unaffordable to anyone except the rich, featuring villas planned to sell for over £1 million. No plans for affordable houses, which were promised as part of the planning permission, have been made public. They do not appear in the proposed development brochure. This location is entirely inappropriate for a housing scheme; it’s far from amenities and is opposed by people living nearby. Planning permission for the golf resort was issued on the basis that the “economic benefit outweighed the environmental harm”. But the rare protected dunes that form part of the estate have been “partially destroyed” since Trump began construction on the resort, and there’s been little benefit to the community. Trump cannot be trusted to deliver on his promises for this resort, and this new development will further damage the beautiful North Sea coastline whilst lining his own pockets. What’s more, we’re signing Scotland away to a man who deals in lies and hate, which will damage the country’s reputation.

  • Keep Longholme Farm Open
    For two years, Longholme Farm has been one of the fastest growing and most successful campsites in the area. Steve Crossland, the owner, is a genuine, hard working man who has built the site from the ground up. He has strived to make Longholme a place of fun and happiness with relaxed rules and a welcoming atmosphere and wants nothing more than to see people happy. He and his wife, Gail, have worked hard through many trying times, losing their son to a tragic car accident being their biggest test, yet they have soldiered on, still faced with a constant barrage of unfounded complaints and now their future is being threatened. Longholme has become an important and favourite place for so many families, including many local ones who need a break from time to time. Steve and Gail have created a safe environment for children to play and parents to relax and the site also attracts a lot of families with children with special needs because of it's safe, back to basics nature. Along with this, the site has brought an incredible amount of business to the town and local businesses, working closely with local pubs and restaurants and bringing business to the shops and supermarkets. Doesn't every town benefit from this sort of tourism?! Isn't it the council's responsibility to encourage and protect tourism in their district?! Although the campsite is their livelihood, Steve and Gail are not in this for money. They have given away many free stays to lucky competition winners, again bringing tourism to the town, and have helped many people who have had difficult times by offering free stays so they are able to provide holidays for their children. All Steve and Gail want is to see people happy and for Longholme Farm to continue to provide this haven for SO MANY people! Below are a few (of MANY) comments the site has received and can be found on their facebook page: Tina Cartledge: "I've heard nothing but good reviews about your campsite and I'm looking forward to going next week with a friend." Beverley Lee: "We including free camping for more than one family who struggle to get away with their chad a blast thanks to your dad and his hospitality and send you all the luck in the world going forward. We look forward to coming back some time in the future xx" Seamus Monahan: "I must say we bloody love the site and steve the man is a giant amongst giants never have i had such a friendly welcome and a big smile looking forward to seeing you all later this month on the field of dreams" Scott Vickers: "your dads site is close to us but the way it feels is like been in a far away land you forget your own worries the feild of dreams is very fitting keep fighting there is more support for steve than negativity dont let it get the better of this wonderful place" Janet Nicholson: "im a local girl that loves coming to longholme even tho its ten mins away it makes me feel a thousand miles away and gives me and my family an escape to relax and have fun. long live longholme" James Anderson: "From a Retford caravan and camper hope your hard work pays off best of luck" More can be seen at facebook.com/longholmefarm If you have a Longholme story to share, please send a message to the facebook page.

    It's one thing to deny funding towards building the Tidal Bay Lagoon, in Swansea (A green and 100% renewable energy source). Further more, to announce the establishment are funding over 100 MILLION in to nuclear power plants in UK is frankly, below the belt. BUT, to dump the nuclear waste in wales, on the belly's of our shores is audacious, to the point of beyond belief. The British Government, YOUR GOVERNMENT, are planning to dump 300,000 tonnes of toxic waste surrounding Cardiff bay. This waste will the be carried through the strong Severn River currents outwards, towards the natural, beautiful, award winning beaches of the Gower peninsular, Swansea. Towards the Irish east coastal areas. The current will also take the nuclear infected water up stream to the heart of the river, where river banks, vegetation and marine life will also be affected. This NEEDS to be prevented. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FOOD FOR THOUGHT: During the the massive media speculation around the re-naming of the Severn bridge, Prince Charles was quoted: "Why weren't the welsh people notified and asked about this" To which he followed - "No wonder they are not happy". Naming a bridge is one thing, This is another level.

  • RSPB : please support the bird life in Hellifield, North Yorkshire
    The Flashes are a very unusual phenomenon. The water comes & goes. In winter there are several lakes full of water & in summer they can almost dry up. Usually the main Flash always has water. The biodiversity of the area attracts all kinds of bird & wildlife. Many of them are endangered & on red or orange lists which are promoted as in need of protection & conservation. Some of them breed on the Flashes, some of them overwinter as part of migration. The joy of this area is that it is available to all & is used by many bird watchers & photographers as well as walkers. Someone who can't walk can sit in a car at one side & watch bird activity. A novice bird watcher, like myself, can quickly pick up knowledge & interest by watching each day as different birds come & go. One day a flock of lapwings, another day there might be oyster catchers, sandpipers, herons, god-wits, shelducks...the list goes on. There is other precious wildlife in the area too, notably the great crested newt, a protected species, but this petition is concentrating on the birds & the role of the RSPB in supporting the plans for destruction. Why spoil an area which has functioned beautifully for generations, which provides rare & unusual habitat & supports so many kinds of birds? There is no need for 300 wooden chalets & a hotel & car parks in this area. There are plenty of nicer places to stay already. Is it really worth it at the expense of bird life? Craven District Council reference is Planning Application 42/2016/17496 Hellifield Flashes, if you want to read more.

  • Reject Park Lane Group Housing Development in Strand Meadow
    There are many reasons why houses should not be built in this area, and the developer "Park Lane Group" are using well-known loopholes in the system in an attempt to build homes for pure profit without taking into account the needs and concerns of the local community. - Originally, 12 out of 30 homes were to be 'affordable'. However, recent revised plans show all properties to be full market value because the developer has now deemed the project to be no longer viable if any of the homes are made 'affordable'. This is a well-known planning loophole to get around the requirements set by government and council that all new planning developments on AONB (areas of natural beauty) should include a minimum amount of affordable housing. - This development does nothing to provide homes to meet known local housing needs - People in Burwash need housing the can afford and must not be priced out of the village by the greed of housing developers - The planning protection afforded by the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natual Beauty (AONB) must not be chipped away by speculative housing developments - The field and its surrounding ecology should not be destroyed for an exclusively 'non-affordable' estate - The lack of parking in Strand Meadow creates severe traffic congestion. The problems of the extra traffic that will be generated during the construction of the houses and after the houses are occupied have not been properly addressed - The developer's traffic report is outdated and uses data from 2006. Photographs of the area were deliberately taken at a time when there was less traffic in Strand Meadow and does not accurately portray the amount of cars parked during evenings and weekends. Most importantly, there is already limited access for emergency service vehicles and refuse collections. - Burwash Traffic already created danger for pedestrians and other road users: a) at the A265 junction with Shrub Lane, b) the narrow ends of the High Street and c) along Shrub Lane - Changes to the drainage provisions requested by East Sussex County Council to reduce risks of flooding and protect the River Rother from further deterioration have been ignored - The design of the housing is wholly unsuitable and the density of housing units within the AONB is too great - Plans for sewage disposal have been left deliberately vague. Southern Water have confirmed they have no extra capacity to handle sewage. The Environment Agency's stated policy is that permits for treatment plants where there is existing sewage pipework are likely to be refused.
