This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition Cease all new developments on Greenbelt and Greenfield sites across the country.
Government housing policy is forcing councils to meet aggressive house building targets. This directly causes new developments on Greenbelt & Greenfield. Many councils believe the targets are unrealistic. According to CPRE 460,000 homes are currently planned for greenbelt & greenfield sites.
Loss of greenbelt & greenfield sites for housing negatively affects the environment, releasing carbon from the land & losing that land's ability to capture new carbon. Wildlife and plant life already under stress, are displaced & loss of green spaces has a negative effect on communities. Our green and pleasant land will soon be no more.
If you value your environment, the health of your children, our green spaces & associated flora & fauna, you must sign this petition to Preserve Our Country.
