Petition Stop proposed investment zones
The Government needs to cancel all plans to create investment zones as part of its "growth plan".
There are fears that these investment zones will be an "attack on nature".
Part of the plans for these zones is that they will bring forward additional development, including a mix of both commercial and residential development, and there are fears this will involve development of land that is part of AONBs, national parks and other green belt land.
These investment zones could reduce requirements for new developments, and so lead to additional development of, and adverse environmental effects on, the countryside.
