  • NHS England's scorecard Denies Access to Treatment for Ultra Rare Diseases
    19/12/2014: Following the threat of a legal challenge by a 10 year old boy with Morquio, NHS England have announced that they are abandoning the scorecard and are going back to the drawing-board on their approval process. We are really pleased that the petition and threat of legal action has forced NHS England to develop a fair decision making process for ultra-rare diseases - thank you to everyone who signed.

  • Immoral tactics of Teignbridge District Council
    UPDATE: 14/09/16 Warren Farm can continue farming, and the Weeks family can continue their farming family history. We have heard this week that Teignbridge District Council has declared the land that has been selected for the SANGS is to the north of Dawlish, which adjoins one of the new housing developments. Thank you so much for signing this petition, and for campaigning with me to keep Warren Farm farming. I would like to thank my fellow campaigners, Cllr Martin Wrigley and Cllr Gary Taylor too, for their part in driving this campaign forward. And finally, sending best wishes to Richard Weeks and his family, for the continued farming of Warren Farm.

  • NO to 275 new homes being built on farmland at Shurnhold, Melksham, Wiltshire
    UPDATE - 11/10/16 - We won. We all knew from the outset that Gladman Homes’ plan to place 275 houses on land in Shurnhold was wholly unsuitable for our area. We worried about the effect it would have on flooding, on traffic, on school places, and on the nature and feel of our community. So we objected. We sent our objections to Gladman Homes, we signed this petition, we wrote to Wiltshire County Council. The Council listened to us, and agree that we were right, and so the Council turned down the application. But that was not the end of it. Gladman appealed to the Secretary of State. A two-week planning inquiry took place over the summer, which took into account the objections we had all made, and where evidence was heard from local residents. The Planning Inspector then went away to consider the evidence, and she has now published her decision, rejecting the application. So there you have it. Our voice has been heard, and working together we have won. Thank you. Mark Ashkowski
