  • Crawley Town FC training ground
    Crawley Town FC is loved by many in the Crawley area. The club has been struggling with training facilities for years and has been forced to use unsafe plastic pitches and local school grounds. The current training ground situation is not good enough for the club to progress to the next level. With access to the land at Bewbush, RH11 8WB, Crawley Town FCs success will progress greatly resulting in more opportunities for the residents of Crawley, an increase in the community and more visitors to the Crawley area which will have a positive effect on the local economy. Football often has a huge positive impact on towns and cities and this training ground land is about the longevity and foundation of Crawley Town FC. For these reasons, it will be a massive success for the Crawley community if Crawley Town FC are allowed to use Bewbush as their training ground site.

  • Save the Barbican Estate from harmful redevelopment
    The Barbican, described by Queen Elizabeth as "one of the modern wonders of the world" is an internationally famous icon of the Brutalist architectural style and a utopian ideal for city living. The City of London School for Girls has expanded piecemeal over the last 50 years, each time encroaching on the grounds and architectural features of the Estate, compromising the vision of the architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon. These latest proposals, if approved, would inflict major harm on this global cultural asset, by obscuring the double-height piloti, adding large new structures which will be visible across the Estate and removing a stunning Grade II* listed vista in the Estate’s 50th year.

  • Please change our unused park...
    It's a waste of space, lots of younger children live near there and no one uses it... It only has bars and gym/training equipment, none of which any children use and could be dangerous if they try... Please, please change it into a park local children can use and enjoy...

  • Save Osler Street Park from being built on.
    Osler Street Park is an extremely important and well used green space and play area provision for our local community. It is well used by all local residents including students, families, teenagers and young children. It is a well designed, safe space with easy access and will not be able to just be replaced. The play park and Multi Use Games Area provide an important leisure and recreation site which children and adults alike can use to exercise and socialise for free, thereby promoting a healthy lifestyle. The surrounding green space (including trees) is an extremely valuable green site and open space which should be protected. It also provides recreational and exercise opportunities and helps to contribute towards cleaner air for our community. The local community do not want this precious space taken away from us. We believe that any development or building on this site goes directly against the policy for promoting and enhancing a green infrastructure network in the City (TP7) which is detailed in the Birmingham Development plan.

  • Keep the Elm Avenue Stadium as a Sports Ground for local people
    The Stadium at Elm Avenue should not be destroyed by property development as it is an sports area of rich historic significance for the people of Newark. In the past, the land has been passed over to local government ownership with a view to it remaining as a sports area for local people. There is little free-access or low-cost sports space in this town and this precious yet currently underused space is in demand. There are football teams and other local people who are keen to use this space but it has been governed in such a way that they could not afford to use it and so it has little use at present. This is a terrible shame as we need to encourage more grass-roots sport. If the Stadium space is built on, the local people will lose yet another area of green. As Newark is an area low social mobility and multiple studies have shown links between access to green-space and economic well-being, the local government should be doing everything in its power to protect any remaining green-space. In addition green areas are needed now more than ever to mitigate against climate change. Instead of removing urban green space, we need to protect and improve it, for example by adding further trees to the entrance to the site and thereby supplementing the few that exist already. Help us to first protect and then maintain this urban green area for current and future generations of Newark to enjoy.

  • Help us save two historic buildings in Newton Le Willows
    The restoration works will save the manor house, which was built in 1774, and barn which dates back to the 1600s and will deliver a further 10 apartments. The listed buildings have lain empty for decades and have fallen into an advanced state of disrepair, and this is the last opportunity to save the buildings, which are described by Historic England as being “not only of local significance but of national importance.” It will also provide much needed family homes for the local area.

  • Cuckoo Hill, Bures: Retrospective planning permission should not be granted for new applications
    A developer has knowingly built 6 houses in breach of planning permission. In July 2018 an application for retrospective planning permission was refused by the Planning Committee. Work has continued on site and now 3 new applications for retrospective planning permission for Plots 1-4 have been submitted. The developer has ignored local concerns, intimidated residents and run rough shod over neighbours by continuing to build houses both higher than approved and closer to neighbours. The new properties dominate the skyline and overshadow original houses and gardens intruding on residents’ privacy. We ask Babergh District Council Planning Committee to stick to the decision made in 2018 and refuse retrospective planning permission for the site.

    Travelodge wants to build a 70 bedroom Hotel in Bude, Cornwall. However we already have enough accommodation for visitors, Premier Inn, Indpendent Hotels, B&B's, Caravan Parks and Holiday Homes! How many more do we need? It will increase traffic, create an eyesore, and take business away from the current accommodation places in Bude. Yes it will create jobs, but loads more jobs will be lost when independent hotels who employ more staff are closed down! If you love Bude, you would sign. Sign, before it's too late...

  • Save Donkeystone Brewery Tap
    The brewery tap is a crucial part of a modern day brewery business. It is used to promote the brewery’s products and increases brand awareness in a very competitive market. It also provides a great community space for local families, walkers and tourists to meet and socialise in a comfortable friendly environment. Your valued support will help us to carry on our good work supporting local charities including Saddleworth Round Table, Oldham Mountain Rescue, Oldham Foodbank and many more. It will also help us to carry on our work in helping to promote and showcase other great local businesses and events such as Cotton Clouds Festival, Oldham Comic Con, Common Ilke, Suki’s Wardrobe, Little Deerhill, Mann’s Wharf, Saddleworth Distillery and Little Saddleworth Pie Company.

  • Keep North Acton Playing Fields for the Community!
    1) North Acton Playing Fields are designated as Public Open Space on the Ealing Policies Map and fall within the definition of a ‘Local Park’ in the London Plan. 2) North Acton Playing Fields are the nearest open space to the considerable developments c15,000 persons in and around Gypsy Corner. Many developers have sited the Playing Fields in their applications referring to the Ealing Green Space Strategy 2012-2022. 3) LBE has asked the Gypsy Corner/North Acton developers to provide Section 106 monies in excess of £500,000 to be spent on the playing fields. 4) The current artificial football pitch (originally 2 hard tennis courts) and remaining tennis courts are now privately managed; the tennis courts are rarely available to the public. 5) The plans to re-site the popular cricket pitch will not allow enough space for a game and be sited dangerously close to the children’s playground. 6) Gating off the South East Corner of the park will prevent walkers and runners (distance markers in situ) using popular paths and accessing park from south-east corner. 7) Increase in noise and light pollution especially late at night for residents near to football pitches. 8) Increase in air pollution from increase in traffic – Gypsy Corner already known to be a dangerously high. 9) Pavilion with changing rooms and café already available in park – no need for additional buildings. 10) Two large artificial sports pitches will be a hazard to dogs, wildlife and their habitats; and possibly human health. They will also affect the ecology of the area. These artificial grass facilities are also creating wastes which will never biodegrade. 11) The proposals are against the original purpose for which the park was purchased, as stated in the Covenant dated 7/9/1911. Finally, these proposals include a permanent loss of recreational playing fields. This could well have an enormous impact on the local community’s mental well-being and physical health. There will minimal space left for relaxation and recreational use and limited sports facilities available to the whole community.

  • Apologise for Trump course
    In 2008 members of Aberdeenshire Council and the Scottish Government were involved in granting a planning application which was submitted by the Trump Organisation for the development of a golf course on the Menie estate. The council supported the destruction of an irreplaceable nature conservation site on the basis of unlikely and exaggerated promises of jobs and investment which have never materialised. They then refused to rule out using its powers of compulsory purchase to obtain residents' homes on behalf of Mr Trump, causing great distress. Approval of this controversial application must now be regarded as regrettable from the vantage point of the last couple of years. We deserve an apology. This would require to be not just a token gesture but more of a promise that lessons will have to be learnt from this sad episode.
