Message from 38 degrees - if you haven't already done so please sign their petition:
have just three days until the government shuts its consultation on
rigging the planning system in favour of property developers.
We can stop this turning into a building free-for-all which could blight
our landscape for generations. But we haven't got a moment to lose!
On Monday, the "Save Our Countryside" petition will be carried into 10 Downing Street.
The more names on it, the more likely we are to get the government to
protect precious green places and wildlife from bulldozers.
Can you ask your friends and family to join the 100,000 of us already saying "Save Our Countryside"? If enough of us get involved, we can make David Cameron realise the public wants him to rethink these dangerous plans.
So many different groups are worried about the current plans: The National Trust warns that "short term financial gain has been put ahead of everything else."  Friends of the Earth predicts “a building free-for-all that will blight our countryside with bad building.”  The National Housing Federation warns: “these changes could let private developers off the hook in terms of delivering thousands of affordable homes.” 
If we work together, we can change the government's mind.
We can protect local communities' right to have their say. We can make
sure affordable housing is built where it’s needed. And we can protect
wildlife and beautiful, tranquil places for future generations.
The consultation closes in three days. Once our green fields are gone, they're gone forever. So let's move fast now to protect them - just like we did to stop England's forests being sold off.
