Staines upon Thames is a small market town with a defined character. Apart from a small cluster of high-rise developments at the end of town furthest from the river, most buildings in the town are three or four storeys high – and none more than six. Persuading Spelthorne Borough Council to abandon its draft plan for tower-block developments up to 15 storeys high at or close to the riverfront, including in the sensitive Staines Conservation Area, would protect the town’s distinctive character, appearance, amenity, townscape and skyline.

  • Remove Picton from Cardiff City Hall
    Thomas Picton’s statue has stood in the collection of Welsh Heroes in Cardiff City Hall for a hundred years, honouring his military exploits and ignoring his crimes. Even by the standards of the early 19th century, Picton was a particularly brutal figure in the transatlantic slave trade and the harsh exploitation of the sugar plantations. He was convicted of the torture of a 14-year old girl. He was no hero. Cardiff today aspires to be a welcoming city. People from across the world have settled here to work and to live, bringing vibrancy and diversity. Thomas Picton has no place in the capital city of Wales. Removing this statue will send a message to Black people in Cardiff and across the world that the city recognises the role people like Picton played in slavery, and that we must address the systemic racism that still exists due to slavery and Empire.

  • Improve Central Hill, Crown Dale, and Elder Road junction
    Elder Road junction has split highways management between Lambeth and Croydon and for years has been left without improved crossings. It is cross border, where Central Hill is principally managed by Croydon, and Crown Dale is principally managed by Lambeth. We request a joint cross-border approach to: - investigate, consult and report what layout changes and other interventions would improve road safety at the junctions with Elder Road and Central Hill and Crown Dale; - introduce new road safety measures by schools (Croydon and Lambeth side), especially to address school opening and closing; - reduce dangerous speeding by drivers, and consider 20mph due to the concentration and number of local schools, and its steep hills; - and encourage increased walking and cycling locally, to make safer access to local parks, to many local schools and health services on this road, and to seek funding for highways improvements. Also important, is to tackle other dangerous junctions on Central Hill (at the Salters Hill and the Westow Street junctions), and further along Crown Dale. This section of A214 (from Crown Dale to Crystal Palace) sees too many Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI) casualties. We want a safer future for everyone who lives, works and goes to school on these local roads. Add your reasons for signing with concerns you have about safety on this road.

  • Petition Supporting Proposals to Improve the Car Park at Sutton Park's Boldmere Gate (2021/00528/PA)
    Boldmere Gate is one of the major entrances to Sutton Park and the current parking provision is both unsafe and unattractive. The plans that have been submitted propose laying eco-turf and porous hard standing that will make the parking area more attractive visually, safer for visitors, better for the disabled whilst being ecologically sustainable and sensitive to Sutton Park's status as a Grade II listed Historic Park & Garden, Scheduled Ancient Monument, Site of Special Scientific Interest, National Nature Reserve and the Heart and Lungs of our Town. The current damaged overspill area would be returned to natural heathland. The 2022 Commonwealth Games Triathlon will take place around Boldmere Gate, the current facilities are not fit for purpose and do not do justice to Sutton Coldfield. This is a perfect opportunity to showcase Sutton Coldfield internationally whilst leaving a tangible legacy for the residents. More details of the plans can be found here: http://eplanning.idox.birmingham.gov.uk/publisher/docs/13FC24C7A7169B908205CDFD06FBE2FC/Document-13FC24C7A7169B908205CDFD06FBE2FC.PDF

    Developers have just been granted permission to revamp Newport Market. But as part of the £12-million revamp the developers propose to cover the stained glass window with a new window film with the company logo. The stained glass window was commissioned by Newport City Council as part of the refurbishment of the market in 2003. It is the largest stained glass window in Wales and represents a significant work of public art in the UK. The artist who designed the window has said that this would be an act of cultural hooliganism. The organizer who commissioned the window on behalf of Newport Council in 2003 has said that Newport needs to assert its ownership and pride in the artworks that it has commissioned with public money for the people of Newport. The city of Newport lost an important work of public art when the Chartist mosaic mural was destroyed in 2013.

  • Speed bumps on Talbot Road
    So many cars racing up and down the road. So dangerous, especially as two schools behind it. The big issue is the lower end , near Halfords up to Post Office. Have support from community support officer who is concerned also. I've told Tameside council in numerous occasions, but they said until a petition was done or a child was run over and killed (their words not mine!) Nothing would be done about it. Let's not let it be the latter! Please sign and help your community

  • Capel St Mary Skatepark
    This is important because there is a very little amount of public entertainment in the local area. Building a skatepark would bring new people into the village and would help the local stores by bringing in new customers. A skatepark provides endless hours of entertainment for all.

  • Pharmacie Café outdoor safe garden
    This is extremely important as we are in the middle of a pandemic and we would like customers to be able to use the café and be at a safe distance from each other. Using the garden and outside space will mean we can have a larger capacity and therefore have more opportunity to be a viable business.
