Petition against over development

Jane, Claire and I will be calling on as many of you as possible through September to ask you to sign a petition Tobias Ellwood MP (pictured with our former MP David Atkinson) is organising. The petition, to the Borough Council and the Secretary of State for Local Government and the Regions asks that:

We the undersigned, concerned about the changing character of Bournemouth due to over-development and the lack of investment in infra-structure, formally ask the three above named organisations to:

1. reconsider the impact present planning policy is having on our town;
2. introduce legislation to protect back gardens from development;
3. place more emphasis on off-street parking facilities, and;
4. ensure Bournemouth’s remaining Greenbelt is not threatened.

I hope you might consider signing it, and at that same time let us know of any issues that need to be addressed in your area.

Is it just me or does Tobias look puzzled? (If he is, perhaps he is puzzled as to why the government seems intent on destroying British countryside...)
