Your comments on this campaign
The government is trying to push through massive changes to the way the planning system works. Swathes of pristine countryside and vital green fields around our towns and cities could be put in jeopardy.
If these plans are rushed through they could put the interests of big developers ahead of the local people. We can’t let that happen. Our planning system should ensure local voices are heard and work to protect our green areas for future generations. Once we lose our countryside, we lose it forever.
Let's ask the government to tackle the big causes of house shortages. Such as not building enough, quality housing, well planned in the right places, and cuts to affordable housing.
A huge petition will force the government to rethink their plans. If we can prove how strongly the public are against this, they will have to back down. Please sign the petition now.
