Here's a Parliamentary Petition raised by 'Nature Ally' to protect our Green Belt and Farm land.

They say:

"There is an abundance nationally of brownfield sites that have stood idle and neglected whilst greedy developers are on a daily basis, and aided by central government, procuring green belt land and farm land which in turn is taking away some of our most wonderful and beautiful landscapes transforming them from natural green to concrete grey or asphalt black.

Our countryside is now disappearing at an alarming and accelerated rate diminishing and destroying natural wildlife habitat and consequently driving away our precious wildlife almost to extinction in some cases. The effect on climate change is also unprecedented and yet the government is not only allowing the destructive policies to continue but in a lot of cases where local residents and local authorities have refused planning permission for development on greenbelt land and farming land the minister for housing and communities has unilaterally overturned the democratic wishes and decisions of local residents and local authorities.

Please support our petition so we may together try and hold central government to account."

Petition: Prioritise brownfield development in law to protect our green belt and farmland
