The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is currently running a charter to Save our Countryside – asking for better protection for the countryside; a fair say for local communities in planning for the places where they live and work; and more housing – but of good quality and in the right places. You can sign the charter here.
Our campaign is a wake-up call for the Government. We are saying loud and clear that whatever their original intentions, the reformed planning system is not working.
Welford-on-Avon Parish Council e-petition
Additionally, as you may have seen in the Stratford-upon-Avon Herald, Welford-on-Avon Parish Council has lodged an e-petition on the HM Government website: to “Amend the NPPF now, before irreversible damage is caused to our communities” – following our MP, Nadhim Zahawi’s comments in the press. Although this petition was originally aimed at local councillors (parish, district and county), it is now open to all, and can be found here.
