• Save our Essex weather boarded cottage
    Wickford has few historic buildings left and this forms a wonderful group, including the weatherboard cottage that is the oldest building in the town centre. And the brick building to the right was Wickford's first bank that was also the Headquarters for the first home guard during the second world war.

  • Save Shaftesbury Cattle Market
    Shaftesbury Cattle Market is the last undeveloped publicly owned space in the centre of Shaftesbury. North Dorset District Council (NDDC) supported by Shaftesbury town council, against the wishes of the people of Shaftesbury, as proved by a public vote, wish to sell the site to a developer. The site may be used for a supermarket, although there is an empty supermarket in the centre of Shaftesbury, housing or a care home. The petition is to stop the sale so that the land is used for the benefit of the people and businesses in Shaftesbury. A community centre, car parking, fitness suite, new doctors surgery, leisure centre have all been suggested. The money from the sale will line the pockets of NDDC a council which will cease to exist in April 2019 and not benefit the people of Shaftesbury.

  • NO to settlement boundaries for Abinger Common
    Abinger Common forms an important part of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its widely spread out clusters of dwellings set in rolling countryside are an excellent example of the openness and beauty of the ideal Green Belt settlement. It also contains a Mesolithic pit dwelling that is testament to the many centuries of human habitation. The imposition of boundaries would facilitate the removal of Abinger Common from the Green Belt and thereby also "development in depth" of housing across an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that should be preserved for the nation to enjoy.

    Over the past 80 years, the pub has been a significant venue within the area and has been a place where many community members have socialised, built lasting friendships and relationships. It has been a place where live music chimed the ears of local people too.

  • Stop Proposed Fish farm on West coast of Jura
    The environmental impacts would be devastating for wildlife found on the west coast. The West Coast of Jura is a truly unspoilt wilderness. The chance of escapee fish would be very high given the ferocity of the gales on an extremely exposed site during the winter months. Please if you need further information check out some links from various sources raising concerns on fish farming. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DQYZ07ZS0CU https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/12/salmon-farming-has-done-enormous-harm-fish-environment-warns/amp/ http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/15118242.Revealed__Scandal_of_45_Scottish_lochs_trashed_by_pollution/

  • Stop Distracting Advertising On A Roads
    These adverts are dangerous and detrimental for many reasons: 1. You are distracted whilst driving, encouraged to take your eyes off the road. That is the sole purpose of advertising boards. The text is often wordy and requires considerable time to read fully. 2. They are illuminated at night costing money and as highlighted in David Attenbourough's shows, the excess light we create adversely affects our wildlife. They are also arguably even more distracting in the dark of night when illuminated. 3. It's yet more advertising forced upon us. It's hugely intrusive as you cannot ignore it. Also the size of them enforces the message more strongly, especially when lit up like a Christmas tree. I don't want our children forcibly exposed to even more materialist advertising. 4. It's unsightly. These monstrosities are more in line with an American Billboard or the fluorescent advertising we know from Tokyo. It's not befitting of our culture and locations they are being placed. 5. It doesn't fit in with our value system and doesn't promote anything positive in our culture. It simply encourages spending and self aggrandising. This is a shift already present in our culture, I don't want any further progression in this direction. The advertising could have been about recycling, speed awareness, bike safety or driving tired. Instead they are about shoes, bags and sunglasses. Whilst I understand the council looking for more revenue streams, this one has been created to our detriment. The decision should be reversed and advertising along A roads not permitted unless the message has to do with promoting road safety.

  • No gravel extraction haul road through Fairlop Waters Country Park
    This is an important area for the biodiversity of the Country Park and if it goes ahead will disrupt a long eared owl roost, an area for amphibians (Including great crested newt) and reptiles, and not so common birds on passage such as spotted flycatchers, wheatears, redstarts, winchat etc. We have just found recent evidence of badgers in the area with one definite sett further up the haul road route and one potential sett on the disputed section of land in the country park. This is an important species to find on Fairlop Plain as up till now was thought to have been totally lost to the area. There is also quite a bit of bat activity along the strip though species are currently unknown as only seen on remote trail cams for badger monitoring. As well as being disruptive to users of the country parks bridleways and footpaths especially the crossing point from Aldborough Hall Equestrian Centre, we expect dust generated from the road surface to also be a health issue. Lorries will potentially be travelling along the road in both directions at up to 3.5 minute intervals. We believe that this haul road is divisive to the community and cannot be accepted by those that care about the natural environment of Redbridge and the protected species whose habitat would be destroyed forever.

  • Oppose The Mount School Playing Field Development in York
    A planning application to build 12 executive homes on The Mount School playing field has been submitted to City of York Council. Many within our community are opposing the plan, and believe the development; 1. Is contrary to National Planning Policy which advises against building on playing fields, and states developments must be in accord with locally agreed plans. The City of York Council’s existing development plan identifies the land as a Playing Field and not land for housing. 2. Will exacerbate traffic on our already congested streets, posing a safety risk for children, drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. 3. Will increase flow into already inadequate drains, worsening our poor drainage and sewage issues. 4. Will have a negative impact on the wildlife that the playing field supports, including hedgehogs, toads, owls, newts and bats. The council has rigorously assessed 800 sites in the city for development and The Mount School playing field was not one of these sites. Selling a portion of the field for housing sets a precedent for further development of the site, and other playing fields around the country, risking greater facility loss, detriment to ecology and our communities in the future. How can I support the campaign against the development? As well as signing this petition, you can lodge your opposition to the plans. This must be done by 24th September, by; 1. Commenting on the application online at: https://planningaccess.york.gov.uk/online-applications/ and entering the reference 18/01655/FULM 2. Email: planning.comments@york.gov.uk 3. Write to City of York Council’s planning team at: Development Management, City of York Council, West Offices, York YO1 6GA. For further information about the plans, help with composing an objection, or the group please contact Murray Rose at: murray.rose5@btinternet.com Please support our campaign The Mount Vale Community, York
