This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Petition Give all airfields statutory protection as Valuable Habitats for flora & fauna

Airfields are under threat for development for housing
Airfields provide havens for flora and fauna as they are never ploughed or sprayed with chemicals - occasional aircraft movement has little effect on plants animals & reptiles
Airfields provide an open space amenity for local people

More details

Airfields are being closed by developers destroying significant areas of natural habitat within airfield boundaries. All airfields should be reclassified as "Valuable Habitats" and given protected status to save rare plants, animals, reptiles, insects and invertebrates under The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010
