• Force Big Power Companies to do The Right Thing
    Everyone in the UK not living off the grid is being held to ransom by greedy Utility Companies, enabled Government and the so-called Regulator, in the anti-social behaviour of over charging and hiding profits by operating split business models to allow disingenuous presentation of profits.

  • 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.

  • Better IoT Cybersecurity Education for Parents
    For many modern families, the digitally-connected world isn't a new one. For children especially, a digital-heavy reality is a reality they have always known. There are currently more than four times as many IoT devices as human beings on the planet, with a predicted 75 billion devices in use by 2025 (Statista). Over a third of children under the age of one have already used a smart device, and user rates only increase with age. The idea that there are IoT devices that introduce simplicity, are inclusive to all users, is fair and just, and protect users at all times, is a dream that has not yet come true. Tech companies often market IoT devices as the next big, revolutionary thing, promising to add convenience to routine, mundane tasks and enable families to live happier and healthier lifestyles. IoT devices marketed for the home range from tracking technologies to wireless-connected toys and appliances. Parents are often responsible for introducing these devices into the home, whether for play, entertainment, or education. However, parents rarely know what data is being collected, transferred and utilized. There are significant security and privacy concerns, especially with data collection, personal information and potential security breaches. However, parents often do not have references to educate themselves on these issues, leaving them to navigate a tangled, complicated, and often contradicting mess of privacy policies, terms of services, and product information guides. "When it comes to staying safe online, children and their parents have been left with all responsibility, but none of the control." - Dame Rachel de Souza - UK Children's Commissioner Awareness of the potential threat of IoT and digital technologies to society has grown exponentially over the past few years. However, awareness alone is not enough; a significant cultural shift in public opinion and changes in consumer behaviour is needed. We need to improve cybersecurity education to help parents understand more about the concerns brought upon by IoT technologies.

  • Infrastructure must come first, the spine road must come first
    Mid Devon District Council, the landowners and developers of the Cullompton Northwest extension have chosen to completely ignore representations regarding the Northwest development made by the Town Council over many years, and in particular the timing of the full Spine Road and the impact that a late delivery will have on the Town and its residents (both existing and those that will move into the new homes). As a Town Councillor I have repeatedly made the thoughts of residents clear; the full spine road linking Rull Lane and Tiverton Road needs to be in place (at the very least for construction traffic) BEFORE any other work starts. The developer and MDDC have seemingly chosen to ignore this, and the representations made by the Town Council and have no intention of opening a spine road until 140 houses are build (around 3 years!). This is our chance to speak loudly and clearly - construction traffic must not use High Street / Tiverton Road. There is an alternative available to the developers; they can lay the spine road running from Rull Lane to Tiverton Road first, and then all construction traffic can bypass the residential area, the pedestrians, the school children, the heritage action zone, and an area already severely congested and area that suffers horrendous air quality. If we do not speak out now, the disruption in the coming years will be massive. The plan, as presented, will negatively affect everyone in Cullompton for years to come, we can’t stop the development, and we do need more homes; but not at any cost- Infrastructure must come first, the spine road must come first.

  • Harmston, Aubourn and Haddington - Traffic Action Now!
    The volume, speed and weight of vehicles travelling daily through these villages is not in any way suitable for the nature of the road. It poses a very real risk to health and to property and we feel that action needs to be carried out now to prevent serious injury or damage. The increase in the volume, speed and weight of vehicles using this road is having a significant impact on residents by disturbing the peace of these rural, Lincolnshire villages.
