Save Cornwall's Green Fields

Save Cornwall's Green Fields

We want MP's to lobby DCLG for a change in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), so that there is no development on green fields in Cornwall, unless explicitly supported by a Neighbourhood Plan.

Why is this important?

Cornwall Council has already given permission for nearly 30,000 new homes, most of which are to be built on green fields around existing towns. This will increase traffic, have a big (bad) visual impact and make little or no benefit to locals who need genuinely affordable homes. We need to make much smarter use of existing sites in and around Cornwall's town centres so they can flourish once again.

Please sign this petition so that we can show how many people care about protecting the natural beauty of Cornwall and the need for a common sense approach to planning.

Reasons for signing

  • I signed because you are facing the same problems as we are. Greenbelt is needed for health and life...not building .I shall share your petition. Can you perhaps sign ours too. Save Faskine and Woodhall Greenbelt (here) Facebook page with our campaign
  • Cornwall is full of 2nd homes belonging to rich people. It doesn't need more housing, it needs more equal housing.
  • The 'Local Plan' for building and developing is decided by Westminster, not Cornwall. It disrespects our Framework Protection for the Prevention of National Minorities - ratified by the Council of Europe...
