Petition to Manchester City Council and Network Rail
Save the Cornerhouse Buildings
Because they provide a well-loved landmark in the city Because sometimes restoration is better than demolition Because our city doesn't need yet another characterless hotel and apartment block, Manchester can and should be more imaginative than that The original Manchester Evening News article on the potential demolition of the Cornerhouse buildings is here: http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/business/cornerhouse-site-redeveloped-office-hotel-7574601 Cornerhouse as an organisation is evolving into HOME and moving to new purpose-built facilities along Whitworth Street. The proposed redevelopment of the existing Cornerhouse buildings and surrounding area is at a relatively early stage - this is our chance to influence the Council and Network Rail's plans and what is submitted in the planning application. Whilst keeping the Cornerhouse buildings is likely to be considered in the redevelopment options, the buildings may be demolished unless we can give the Council a good reason to keep them. We need more signatures on the petition and ideas for the re-use of the buildings - continue the debate here https://www.facebook.com/SaveCornerhouseMCR?ref_type=bookmark Twitter @OxfordRdCorner (photo courtesy of Ben Page Photography)
Petition to Cardiff City Council
Save Cardiff Bay's Last Green Space
#SaveOurBae We need to protect Cardiff Bay's Britannia and Waterfront Parks from the proposed Association of British Ports (ABP) Dolffin Quay development. This development would replace the last remaining green space in Cardiff Bay with a collection of residential and commercial buildings. The grassed area and children’s playground on the Britannia Park site are the last remaining ones of their kind easily available to local families with children in the area. Cardiff Bay is a unique and world renowned waterfront. Britannia Park has been a vital part of Cardiff Bay since 1993. It is much loved, not only by Cardiff residents, but also by visitors who come to enjoy the outside spaces, art and heritage. Most properties in Cardiff Bay are without gardens. It is vital that we protect the only remaining green space. We therefore call upon Cardiff City Council to reject any application from ABP that would remove the Britannia and Waterfront Parks. Join our campaign to #saveourbae and protect Cardiff Bay's last green space. *********************** Y mae'n rhaid inni amddiffyn parciau Britannia a Waterfront Bae Caerdydd rhag y datblygiad a gynigiwyd gan Gymdeithas Porthladdoedd Prydain (ABP). Fe fyddai'r datblygiad yma yn cael gwared o'r man gwyrdd diwethaf yn y Bae i wneud lle i gasgliad o adeiladau preswyl a masnachol. Y man gwyrdd a'r cae chwarae plant ym Mharc Britannia yw'r diwethaf o'u math yn yr ardal sydd ar gael yn hawdd i deuluoedd lleol a'u plant. Y mae Bae Caerdydd yn unigryw gyda enw byd eang. Y mae Parc Britannia wedi bod yn rhan hanfodol o Fae Caerdydd er 1993 Y mae pawb wrth eu bodd gyda'r parc. Y mae'n cael ei fwynhau nid yn unig gan bobl sydd yn byw yng Nghaerdydd, ond hefyd gan ymwelwyr sydd yn dod i fanteisio ar y mannau agored, y celfyddyd a'r hanes yma. Y mae rhan fwyaf o'r cartrefi ym Mae Caerdydd heb ardd. Y mae'n holl bwysig i warchod yr unig fannau gwyrdd ar ol. Galwn felly ar Gyngor Prifddinas Caerdydd i wrthod unrhyw gais datblygu oddi wrth ABP a fyddai'n lleihau neu gael gwared ar Parciau Britanni a Waterfront. Ymunwch a'n ymgyrch i warchod ein bae (#saveourbae)- y man gwyrdd agored olaf yn y bae.

Stop future developments on playing field used by jnr football team for kids with autism.
This piece of land is used regularly by the local community for different activities. It has more recently become home to a junior football team started for those children being left out of teams in their schools because of their conditions. It helps them to interact with other children with similar needs and feel part of something special. There are currently over 40 children on the books and a waiting list for those who want to join. Giving all our children in this day and age the opportunity to us the open air and exercise is so important. This needs to be encouraged and built upon not taken away from them or anyone else using the land for recreational activities. There are facilities at the new play area (The Ridge) adjacent to the land that can be adapted so the field can be used more regularly by anyone wanting to play football or any other sports. I propose that the land be maintained as football pitches for use by anyone with The Ridge open for changing rooms, public facilities and storage for equipment. If we can get enough backing to stop any development of any kind on this land to preserve the very few parts of green land left in the area. We can push to make this a good positive home for this local team and all the community.

No to Derryadd Wind Farm
This is a petition to stop the proposed Bord na Mona Wind Farm from going ahead. Such a development is going to have an enormous negative impact on us all, in terms of our Families health, property prices, land prices, animal welfare, history, historical amenity, Tourism, jobs, attractions, along with being visually intrusive on our area. Lanesboro and it's surrounding areas have worked tirelessly over the years to make it what it is today in terms of Tourism, jobs, economic growth and a cherished place to hold countless festivals and events. This proposed development will wipe that all out if it goes ahead. We have tried talking with BnM and explaining our concerns, but they refuse to acknowledge such and are moving forward. Thankfully Longford County Council fully recognises our concerns and the damage such a development would do to the County. Please support this petition.

Petition to Minister Eoghan Murphy, Joe MacGrath
Finish Glencree, Newport, Tipperary
https://goo.gl/maps/EKmLeLog2Aq Residents in Glencree Newport are left angry and frustrated due to unfinished Estate. Glencree housing estate was originally built in 2003 where the majority of properties were sold off-plan. Such plans portrayed an idyllic setting displaying manicured green spaces, driveways, roads and street lighting. Plans to include 18 townhouses and a state of the art crèche at the entrance to the estate have never materialised. For those residents who have purchased homes, their reality is an entirely different picture. A number of residents have young families and said that it is fast becoming a nightmare scenario. To date there has been no satisfactory action taken by Singland Homes Ltd., to finish the Glencree Estate. Residents are appealing to Eoghan Murphy, T.D. Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government to take action as the appalling, unfinished condition of the housing estate is putting lives at risk and hampering the social development of the local community. One resident described it as an absolute eyesore and is affecting normal daily living for young families. Another described the metal fencing surrounding the housing estate as unsightly and unacceptable. Residents are infuriated by the dilapidated Porto cabins, unused building materials and an out-building which remain inside the fencing. Many expressed concern that the footpath surfaces to the main Newport to Thurles road are unfinished and hazardous, forcing people off the paths onto the main road, particularly during heavy rainfall. Residents explained that traffic coming from the Thurles direction is immediately met with what now looks like a run-down estate and are outraged by the fact that their homes are becoming inequitable and say this is having a serious effect on their lives. Residents have been let-down by local T.D.s and Counsellors and feel strongly that Tipperary County Council and politicians have failed them. Residents are seeking support from local business owners and the local community as the unfinished entrance devalues the locality of Newport and not just the estate of Glencree. Residents are now appealing to Minister Eoghan Murphy, to take swift action. They are demanding that their quality of life is restored and say that this is not what they bought into and is not what they envisaged for their family lives in Glencree 14 years later. Please sign and share our petition and help give us a voice. This petition is run independently of Glencree Residents Association
Petition to Theresa May MP
Shut down the website sayat.me
This is a petition to shut down the harmful website named sayat.me.com. Sayat.me is a website which allows anonymous comments to be left for people, without a way of tracing the writer. I believe this is an extremely dangerous platform because of the ability to remain anonymous; this will lead to cyberbullying without knowing the perpetrator. There have also been suicides because of this website. In our comment section there are numerous people from all over the UK who have signed because a person took their own life, because of cyberbullying on the site. My heart honestly goes out to anyone affected by suicide; we need to shut down Sayat.me and protect children from vulnerability and harm. This is not the only website of this kind. Last year, there was a petition to shut down Ask.fm, which is the same format as sayat.me, after the deaths of over thirteen teenagers. These suicides were linked to relentless online bullying, after hurtful comments were left anonymously and repeatedly. Cyberbullying needs to be tackled and stopped-not being given a platform and a voice for the criminals who make teen's lives hell. That's why I am calling out to the public, as a 13 year old girl with experience of cyber hate, to join with me in demanding change. I am asking you do to two things: 1 is joining me in lobbing our current PM and government for shutting down sayat.me and doing more to stop cyberbullying; and simply 2: remember those innocent teenagers tragically lost, as a result of this epidemic of online hate, because of both these websites. We have to do more to change this culture, a culture where it is acceptable to use language to deliberately harm the most vulnerable victims. Sayat.me has no viable feature to report abuse, and even then, many people would not feel comfortable because of the stigma surrounding cyberbullying. We need to shut down this website, and make it harder for companies to profit from social abuse. Will you join me in a step against cyberbullying? Please share my campaign on social media, and contact me if you want to do more. thank you.
