Ripley Action Group are pleased to have recently affiliated with the All4betterdevelopment campaign group. RAG is one of a growing number of over 70 action groups around the country who have ‘joined up’. Our common purpose is to protect the over-development of villages and the countryside throughout the UK which is being pushed by local and central government.
So far in Surrey, Pyrford Green, SaveHog’sBack, Save Send Action Group and Guildford Greenbelt Group have joined and many more groups are following suit.
All4betterdevelopment have a started a petition calling for a parliamentary debate on government Housing and Planning policy over building on greenfield land and seeks community right of appeal on planning decisions and the removal of the presumption in favour of sustainable development.
Too many communities are like ours – forced to accept large housing developments and seeing the loss of Green Belt without the right of appeal.
Please sign this petition. It only takes a couple of minutes!
In its first two weeks it has gathered over 12,000 signatures. We need to get the 100,000 signatures that would force Parliament to debate it.
So spread the word; tell your friends and post it on your social media links.
