Stop Stifling Cornwall; Reverse Cornwall Council Agendas

Cornwall Council must revisit its priorities, which are currently geared towards outdated, aggressive and unsustainable urbanisation. We call on Cornwall's councillors to plan for internal need NOT external greed.

Why is this important?

The experience of covid-19 tells us that we can't return to 'normal' because 'normal' is the problem. In Cornwall 'normal' has meant

1) Over-dependence on tourism.
2) A housing market aimed at outside demand and second home owners.
3) An environment ruined by endless urbanisation, ever-increasing traffic and identikit housing.
4) Policies that are helping to create a climate emergency.

We call on Cornwall's councillors to plan for internal need NOT external greed. As the Council's Chief Executive herself said, Cornwall should 'not go back to how it was before'.

It’s time for some radical changes. Help Cornwall Council to make those changes by signing this petition.

Apologies if you were trying to sign this petition on May 5th and found it shut down for three hours for 'inappropriate content'. This was because the word 'killing' in the phrase 'Stop Killing Cornwall' in the original title was flagged and deemed inappropriate by the admin. It may change again to 'destroying', 'ruining' or similar, but I'm sure you get the drift.
