Petition Prioritise brownfield development in law to protect our green belt and farmland
Enshrine in law all brown field sites to be fully developed within a 25 mile radius of green belt or farmland before any development is allowed on non-brownfield land. Ensure in law the democratic wishes of local residents and local authorities as a precedent and limit ministerial powers to suit.
The Government has a duty to protect the environment against climate change, protect local areas of outstanding beauty and natural habitat. Preserve todays biodiversity and bio abundance for the generation of tomorrow. Nature and wildlife is at threat of extinction at the detriment of unnecessary housing development and where today's generation may still have the benefit of existing wildlife tomorrow's generation will only have the benefit of wildlife pictures.
