Protect the beauty of the Surrey countryside before its gone forever

How would you feel if the local countryside you enjoy disappeared forever?
If you answered unhappy, angry, powerless, then please sign this petition.

For me, nature was like a tonic for the soul during lockdown.  Like many of you, I enjoy being outdoors.  It gives me space and I always feel more peaceful and energised, less stressed.   
I am telling you this because the countryside next door to you is under threat.  Help us to preserve it for you, your children and generations to come.
We need your help to enhance and strengthen the protection for Surrey’s most beautiful countryside.  
Natural England – the Government body responsible for the natural environment – will soon be deciding whether or not to redraw the boundaries of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
If we win, and the review concludes that the AONB should be expanded (as per the recommendations), more of the beautiful spaces you and thousands of others enjoy will be preserved forever.
If we don't act now, those special landscapes may be built over and lost forever.  Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Please take action now and sign the petition to persuade Natural England to undertake the AONB review as a matter of urgency, and to extend the boundary to include the surrounding countryside including the Areas of Great Landscape Value (AGLV).   Thank you very much.
