Anne, Alice and Margaret White from LegLag (who wrote this), have alerted me to threat to the countryside from the NPPF. The damage that could be done is truly shocking. I urge you all to take action.

The Government has issued during the Parliamentary Recess a draft document that could change the face of the Countryside of England – and says in effect that all development applications should be allowed to
go ahead.

THIS IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MATTER – PLEASE, PLEASE READ THE LINK DOCUMENTS BELOW AND ADD YOUR SIGNATURES TO THE PETITIONS

LEGLAG CAN HAVE A FAR GREATER INFLUENCE BY JOINING UP WITH THE NATIONAL TRUST FOR ENGLAND AND THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE PROTECTION OF RURAL ENGLAND, THAN BY TAKING ACTION ALONE

Please read these links from the National Trust website and pass it on to as many people as you can think of in order that they will sign the petition.

I have personally linked in to each one, and they are very easy indeed to access. See the Guardian article and the National Trust Petition

Also, we should be encouraging as many people as we can to read the CPRE website and send an e-mail to their M.P. Email your MP here

THESE ACTIONS WILL TAKE A FEW MOMENTS OF YOUR TIME, BUT COULD BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE THING YOU DO TO HELP SAVE OUR GREEN SPACES, AND THE PLACES YOU VALUE.

YOUR ACTIONS TODAY CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
