I believe it is really important to have conservation areas in our environment. These should be preserved as priority. We should prize these little oasis areas more highly and not just let them be developed for short term profit. If we obliterate all wildlife our mental wellbeing will suffer which is an expense to society as a whole in the end - if you want to look at it in a purely financial way. Developers dont really care if there is long term damge to society so its up to the council to protect these areas. Please protect these spaces and withhold planning permission

I am signing this petition because local wildlife is in danger of being destroyed in an already highly populated area of Brighton. It's what makes our community special.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We need to hang on to our green spaces for the sake of local flora and forna and...our health; trees and greenery cleanse the air and reduce the impact of rising pollution levels.

Clarity is essential to our democracy, stop keeping secrets from our residents.

On my way home from work I've often stopped to listen to the birds that sang from here. One evening there was a Sedge Warbler. I've worked in Brighton for almost 20 years, it's the only one I've ever heard in the city. https://soundcloud.com/redbits/sedge-warbler

Once again, as with the surrepticious removal elm trees, on an ongoing basis, from the City's streets, this is rendering our designation as a UN Biosphere meaningless. When are the powers that be going to realise that this status , if respected and applied properly, will be a huge plus-point for our local economy?

The site is too small for the development and we need to retain a wildlife habitat.

I live near this site and was shocked to see men chopping down the trees and clearing this plot of land which was a haven to wildlife .
This was allotments and should perhaps remain as such .

Thanks for adding your voice.

We're allowing the destruction of every tiny remaining bit of environmentally sensitive land in our city, we must find ways of respecting our environment.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I joined with other locals to fight to protect this land when the council considered it suitable for development. it is very sad that in a forward thinking town like ours short term profit comes before the wishes of local residents and any hopes that they and the protected wildlife had for the site. very sad.
