Paula Ann Savage started this petition to Portsmouth City Council and

This petition refers to the redevelopment of St James hospital and the grounds.

Here we have the opportunity to do something better on a site purchased and built by the community, for the community by re-using the Hospital for community infrastructure including Health Care, Elderly and Dementia-Care, GP Surgery and Pharmacy and Affordable Housing.

The proposed plan has too many houses too close to the main Building which has Statutory protections enacted by Parliament.

The houses are Lego-style boxes out of tune with the beautiful design of the Hospital. 
There are too many TPO protected trees being cut which are granted Statutory protection by Parliament. 
There will be over 500 new residents which the applicant says will result in harm to the habitats in Langstone Harbour which has Statutory Protection.

The Council has declared a Climate Emergency setting a target of Net Zero Carbon by 2030 but the applicant will not provide renewable energy and will reduce green space.

The scheme would stress the local network and increase pollution. 
The scheme would stress local services such as schools and GP Surgeries.
The scheme is not a Sustainable Development:- it harms the natural environment whereas the UK's 25 Year Environment Plan aims to restore habitats and improve the natural environment and reverse pollution.

If St James is going to be developed it is imperative that is done for the community  and with a sustainable development.

Green spaces are precious and they all need to be protected.
