Scrutinise Nottinghamshire County Council's proposals regarding this technological venture and their processes.

Are Nottinghamshire County Council upholding the aim of protecting Sherwood Forest for the people of Nottinghamshire and its wildlife, or are they turning into a theme park for politicians and academics, in exchange for monetary gain either from Government or commercial enterprise?

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not directly responsible for.

Planning decisions about Sherwood Forest are a matter for Nottinghamshire County Council, not the Government or House of Commons. As a result it is not possible for the Government or House of Commons to take the action you have requested.

If you are concerned about planning decisions in your area you could raise this issue with a local councillor, who represents you. You can use this page to find out who your local councillors are, and how to contact them:
