Petition to Cambridge City Council
To refuse Conservation Area consent to demolish the Flying Pig Public House
Why is this important? In a nutshell the Flying Pig is a great pub and its loss would be deeply felt amongst the local community. There has already been wide support against the demolition of the Flying Pig and we need to back this up with a petition to the Council in the form of a letter which sets out why Conservation Area consent should not be given. In order to justify their actions the developer and others may claim that the wider public would benefit from the demolition and redevelopment of the Flying Pig. If we can demonstrate that the wider public is in fact against the demolition and redevelopment of the Flying Pig, by getting as many people to sign this petition as possible, then it would be much more difficult for the developer and others to argue their case and for the Council to give Conservation Area consent for demolition. So please help us to save the Flying Pig by signing this petition.

Land Securities: Stop the demolition of the sculptures at Allington House.
A unique and much-loved series of sculptures by Barry Baldwin are under imminent threat. The sculptures stand above the door to Allington House in Victoria, London. Land Securities, the developer, plan to reduce the endangered species sculptures to rubble as part of their Victoria development. Land Securities have not divulged how much it would cost to save these works nor have they made any attempt to find them a new home. Please support this campaign to find the sculptures a new permanent home.

Keep the Coldingham Sands Beach Cafe
Coldingham Beach Cafe is facing demolition. As the heart and soul of the beach, the cafe has provided food, drink and shelter for beach goers for generations. Its timber walls have stood the test of time through nearly a century of cold winters and wet summers, but now a dark council storm threatens to blow them down. The council have served an eviction order on the owner to demolish the cafe by the end of September 2012. This stems from the council's refusal to renew the current owner's 10 year lease, offering a 3 year lease. This has effectively killed reinvestment into the building as a 3 year lease makes the upkeep of the building financially unviable. The current owner has invested over £30,000 into the maintenance and preservation of the cafe over the last 16 years. If you would like to see the beach cafe remain in its current form and continue to provide the service it has done for past generations PLEASE sign this petition to show the council your feelings and support for the beach cafe. Thank you.
