The Peoples Hub
June 19, 2021, 8:44 pm
The Peoples Hub has been built to help people and to love the planet, and fully support this campaign. Greenwashing has become the new norm and it is unacceptable. More power needs to be given to / back to the people to improve communities, now and for generations to come. Ethics and transparency are key.

Fuel Poverty Action
May 27, 2021, 2:12 pm
Fuel Poverty Action is particularly concerned about regeneration plans busting up communities and taking away people's support networks, leading to more expensive housing and heating. Even building fabric is not necessarily more energy efficient as claimed, and there are huge carbon costs from reconstruction. Communities must have the right to make informed decision themselves.

Chalgrove Airfield Action Group
May 6, 2021, 12:04 pm
Chalgrove Airfield Action Group has been representing the residents of Chalgrove and the surrounding villages and parishes to ensure that local planners understand and recognise the depth of opposition to placing a disproportionately large car-based settlement in an isolated rural setting. We need planners to understand that our objections may not be couched in idealised planning language, but are absolutely clear in the reasons why this is a terrible idea. We know our area better than you do - we know the chaos and environmental destruction this will cause. Listen to us.

GOSH is campaigning for sustainable open-space management, led by the community for the community in partnership with the council, to enable food growing and encourage biodiversity in the city of Hull. We firmly believe climate change and sustainability must be the foremost consideration in Planning decisions and we therefore support the Charter.

RAFF (Residents Action on Fylde Fracking)
November 13, 2020, 2:18 pm
Local communities are being denied their democratic right to partake in decisions that affect their immediate environment. RAFF (Residents Action On Fylde Fracking) has always encouraged its members to take action and get involved in local matters. The new planning laws do not make provision for this. There also seems to be no mention of the fact that an increase of effective integration of climate change and ecological matters into projects at the earliest appropriate stage enables better outcomes, reduced risk and cost.

It is amazing that those who don't live in an area and have no vested interest in ensuring the needs of the residents are met and that they have a say in what happens are are making decisions which are life-changing. How is this democratic?

I firmly believe corporate greed will destroy the environment and suck all the money out of communities.
