  • Road safety campaign for Bogthorn and Oakworth
    Our residents don’t have safe crossings - speed cameras and other safety measures need to be put in place. The current situation causes residents serious risk by passers exceeding the 30 mile restrictions in our area. One fatality has already already occurred. Residents are not safe crossing the road and neither are children who attend our local primary school.

  • Fighting for Affordable Housing in Leeds
    From data gathered in 2019, there are currently at least 429 people living on the streets (Leeds Live, 2019). This figure emphasises the importance of providing support to those sleeping rough as the number continues to rise. Through this campaign fighting for affordable housing, I am stressing the importance of the impacts on rough sleepers. As those sleeping rough have access too little opportunities to improve their situation, this causes people to spiral, resulting in negative stigmas. Therefore, by attempting to reduce the pricing of houses, whilst offering a scheme, effectively would provide better support for rough sleepers.

  • Save 11 Blenheim Mews in Minehead!
    Minehead is a busy seaside resort on the north coast of Somerset. The town's architectural landmarks are as vital to its economy as it's many other attractions. Many of these buildings are formally recognised period properties. Without Minehead's unique history, the town would not hold as much of a draw to the tourists on which the local economy predominantly depends. The Somerset Historic Environment Record includes every one of Minehead's landmarks and should be safeguarded at all costs. But it is now under threat from developers! 11 Blenheim Mews is one of the buildings on this list and is currently in danger of becoming redeveloped beyond recognition. The stable building is one of the last of its type in Minehead still in its original condition. The Victorians built these stable buildings to serve the imposing Victorian houses of Blenheim Road and are part of the Wellington Square Conservation Area. However, the application intends to remove all original features that make this building unique. The design involves building an extension right up to the front boundary, installing a large, metal bi-fold door and fibre cement sheet cladding to the front aspect, laying a patio area directly outside, installing painted metal windows, three dormer windows and as many skylights. The application also proposes the extensive use of bricks, which is an entirely inappropriate material compared to the stonework of the neighbouring buildings. The building is in the centre of town amongst Minehead's highest-profile landmarks and heritage assets. The proposed application would fail to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area, endangering the historical integrity of the current building and compromising the Somerset Historic Environment Record. Any works should preserve the original facade of the building. If developers lay waste to 11 Blenhiem Mews, the Somerset Historic Environment Record will not even be worth the paper it is written on. The original features of this building deserve better than being consigned to the scrap heap. The planning application is available to view on the Somerset West and Taunton planning portal. The application is entitled "3/21/22/041 | Conversion of residential garage and first floor workshop, with erection of a single storey extension, into 1 No. dwelling with parking | Garage to the rear of Blenheim Mews, Minehead, TA24 5QZ" Please sign this petition today!

  • Reading Parkour park
    Local traceurs of Reading barely have anywhere to train. What we want is a place where we don't have to worry about getting kicked off. A parkour park would be perfect with the architectural design of Denmark's parkour parks so that young traceurs imagination would see what to do instead of showing what to do. Its like show don't tell.

  • Get wildlife awareness taught once a year to all schools
    So many hedgehogs are struggling to survive and we find out that schools don't seek help when they see them out in the day. A better understanding of fledglings that are needlessly taken away from parents and have to be hand reared at rescues taking up valuable space. A simple lesson to highlight how to appropriately rescue wildlife and how to get help should be taught so the future generations understand how best to help our struggling wildlife. Simple measures can be taken to give injured and unwell wildlife to get them into rescues to better their chances of survival. Knowledge is the only way and this should be given to children to improve the future of some our most vulnerable animals. Since the 1950s when there was estimated 35 million hedgehogs to today estimate of less than a million. Some estimates believe they are less than half a million. This knowledge can help out future generations to make improvements and learn to live with wildlife rather than working against it and reducing the numbers further. Unless change happens and that has to come from the future generations then we could see the demise of the hedgehog within the next 10 years. Please promote wildlife education throughout all schools to try to combat these devastating losses.

  • Reopen Finsbury Park - Edgware Railway
    This is a proposal to reinstate the railway from Finsbury Park - Edgware via Highgate as part of Transport for London‘s tube network. This is a priority, to ensure sustainable/sociable public transport continues to plays a key role in tackling climate change in London, and help grow the economy simultaneously. This railway route (closed by British Rail to passenger service in 1954), if reopened would create interchanges with other parts of London’s railway network at Finsbury Park (Piccadilly/Victoria/Great Northern), Crouch End (London Overground), Highgate (Northern Line), Mill Hill (Midland Main Line) and Edgware (Northern Line). All of this would result in a reduced requirement to rely on TFL buses, which produce large quantities of CO/CO2 emissions and noise pollution. Plus buses add to traffic congestion and increase roadworks due to wear on tarmac surfaces. The railway originally closed due to a combination of the ‘Green Belt Act’ and a lack of funding caused by World War 2. This resulted in the failure of the UK Government at the time to handover the project to London Transport (TFL’s predecessor). When passenger services were withdrawn in 1954, predominantly all the associated infrastructure was in place to covert the line from steam trains to an electric passenger railway as part of the Northern Line. Fast forward to 2022, residential housing and industry now surrounds the course of the former railway and would make for a faster journeys in and out of the capital. The majority of the old trackbed between Finsbury Park - Edgware is currently a well preserved nature trail call the ‘Park Walk’. If the railway way reopened this would naturally help to protect fauna and flora along this green corridor. The public would still have access to vast collections of parks to compensate for the lose of this path in the immediate surrounding area. Reopen this railway today as part of the TFL network and transform the surrounding area for the benefit of everyone.

  • Call for Referendum on Cumberland Council having a directly elected Mayor as its Leader
    The changes to local government in Cumbria have see the elections to the new council of Cumberland take place with the 46 new council memebrs elected to represent the wards they have been elected in. However from the majority group that now controls the council the political group will select the leader of the council and the leader the cabinet memebrs. This petition calls for the new Cumberland Council to hold a public referendum on the question of should Westmorland and Furness change its structure to have a directly elected mayor as its leader that the voting public select rather than the leaded be selected behind closed doors by memebrs of the majority party on the council. A directly elected mayor would enable voters the choice of who leads the council and would represent the entire council area rather than a leader that is elected by a few 100 voters in a ward and then appointed by a political party/group as the council leader. Democracy need the voting public to have a direct say on who leads our new council and directly elected Mayor to leaded Cumberland Council is the only way to deliver this. Supoorting this petition as a registered voter in the Cumberland Council area will see a referendum held if enough sign the petition were the voting public get to say yes to a mayor. then an election would take place to elect a mayor directy to lead Cumberland council. For each local authority there is an Executive. Depending on the local arrangements, the Executive is organised in one of three ways: A Leader elected by the Council and a cabinet of Councillors; or A directly elected Mayor and a council manager appointed by the Council. What is a directly elected Mayor? A directly elected Mayor is elected by all the voters in the Council’s area to be the head of the Council’s decision making body. A directly elected Mayor should not be confused with a ceremonial Mayor. Why is a referendum necessary? The introduction of a directly elected Mayor is a significant constitutional change and so a referendum is held to give all voters in the area a chance to choose if they would want this to happen. In order to call a referendum for a directly elected Mayor, a petition must be compiled which is signed by 5% of the number of local government electors that are shown in the current Register of Electors. This 5% figure is called the ‘verification figure’ and is published annually as a formal notice. Please consider signing and sharing this petition calling for a public referendum on a directly elected mayor.
