To help save the environment too many vital places being lost to housing developments

Thanks for adding your voice.

I live opposite. It's a vital bit of land, and the numbers of foxes and badgers has plummeted. It is special, it is loved and home to loads of wildlife. We need these places. Any houses there will be battered by the noise of the trains... It's ridiculous, and we all know there are slow worms

Thanks for adding your voice.

the wishes of the local people whose homes look out on to this parcel of land and the wildlife that lives/ lived there should have been given priority over a property developer. More vandalism of our green spaces for the benefit of non local people no doubt.

It is important

Thanks for adding your voice.

Because myself and my children want to protect this important place for wildlife in our locality

Thanks for adding your voice.

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

Thanks for adding your voice.

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.

Thanks for adding your voice.

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
