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.
