ONCE GONE -
PLEASE SUPPORT US AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Many of you will be aware of the Government’s plans to deregulate planning and its atrocious White Paper. It is becoming increasingly obvious that what is unfurling before our eyes is a total desecration of the South East. Its rolling fertile farmland and coastal areas will be ‘drowning in developments’ and it is about to happen now! We quote RIBA’s comment on the Planning White Paper “there is every chance this could lead to the next generation of slum housing”. An appalling legacy for future generations. What is however desperately needed is affordable housing. This policy could-
JOIN CHICHESTER IN THE EAST WITH EASTBOURNE
CHICHESTER IN THE WEST WITH SOUTHAMPTON
CREATING A CONCRETE RIBBON ALONG THE ENTIRE SOUTH COAST
It centralises planning and in doing so will silence our democratic voice
The supposedly ‘good’ intentions of this government do not live up to the reality. Our Prime Minister spoke on behalf of the UK Government at the IPBES International Forum: He said:
‘The British Government is absolutely tacking biodiversity loss seriously…we are already doing so much about this…one step on a journey of many miles…but we must turn those words into action…binding targets…make the changes we need to achieve these goals…we must act now, right now…catastrophic for us all…extinction is forever…our action must be immediate.’ But…
THE REALITY IS:
In the league table of all European nations on the protection of its nature UK is third from last.
We already have a huge number of species that are on the endangered list.
Our acres of wetlands are being destroyed
Most of our rivers and streams are polluted
Due to Climate Change and rising sea levels the Manhood Peninsula will be the first to flood
Our ‘Protected’ areas are being downgraded due to the lack of investment in infrastructure…and more
We are very grateful for all the support everyone has given us but to be truly successful we need to get more people involved to get our message across to Westminster. We do not have the luxury of years – it is now a matter of only months.
THIS WILL NEED MORE HELP
SOSCA is made up of committed volunteers who are already doing so much – writing to and lobbying SE MPs, demonstrating, writing reports, working with national partners such as CPRE, building a Solent Solidarity group, and communicating with other desperately concerned Action Groups. But we could do so much more if we had some extra funding.
