Petition Tag - extension
It is concerning to note that in the Western Precinct plan of the land in question that the existing Golf Course is shown as a residential subdivision and that the current Golf Course DOES NOT EXIST.
In the “approved” Sussex Inlet Settlement Strategy 2007 it was proposed that part of these sites be developed for mixed residential purposes, a range of community facilities and the expansion of the golf course to 18 holes.
The recent forum in Sussex Inlet conducted by Shoalhaven City Council Tourism Department with businesses in our town also fully endorsed the extension to 18 Holes of the Sussex Inlet Golf Course as it would provide increased “off season” tourism (as most golf is played autumn-winter-spring) which would, in turn, create additional employment at the course, in the hospitality industry and retail thereby providing a much needed boost to the Sussex Inlet economy.
Environmentally, the recycling of a great amount of wastewater to fully irrigate the proposed 18 hole golf course will lessen the amount of wastewater being sent to the sand dunes.
Also attached is a copy of Shoalhaven City Council’s “ Badgee Urban Release Area Planning Proposal Statement Re: Golf Course” --- it is disturbing to note in this document the following points:--
1) The planning proposal also aims to maintain the option for a golf course to be retained or redeveloped on the site in the future as part of the overall development ( This noted under section 2.2.2 of the planning proposal)
2) Should the final location of the golf course be determined/agreed/resolved before the planning proposal is finalised then a clause or specific zone could be included in the final planning proposal for the site.
3) A Development Control Plan (DCP) will also be prepared for the site in the future, to provide further planning provisions to control development. The DCP could show the location of a golf course if necessary.
These double edge statement, with no commitment for the retention or expansion of our golf course, are particularly concerning as there is a risk that we can even lose the golf course we have today under this proposal, let alone achieve the 18 hole golf course that the community have expected, been promised and desired for over 30 years.
It is urgently needed for the business owners, residents of Sussex Inlet, Cudmirrah, Berrara and all visitors to assist in getting State Planning and Shoalhaven City Council to endorse and approve the alternative Urban Structure Plan A-06 L being put forward by Lucas Property Group to Shoalhaven.
Impington Village College has just concluded a 4 week consultation on becoming an academy. Like most other schools in Cambridgeshire, the consultation has been rushed through and very little has been done to notify the local community, despite the governors saying that they wish to preserve the school’s “distinct ethos as an outward-facing village college true to the founding vision described by Henry Morris”.
We have collected around 300 local signatures on a paper petition, requesting an extension of time, to enable wider consultation, and expect the number to increase to between 300 and 400 by the time of the next governors’ meeting on 19th July.
At present the governors are ignoring the voice of the local community. The governors have not even acknowledged the petition*, let alone said they will consider it at the next full governors’ meeting on 19th July. A petition of this size should not simply be ‘swept under the carpet.”
We would like to extend the petition to include the wider Cambridgeshire community as every school that converts to an academy affects the neighbouring maintained schools and the services the Local Authority is able to provide. Changes of this magnitude should not be rushed through without broad and inclusive consultation. Please sign the petition if you live in Cambridgeshire.
We are also collecting signatures opposing the academy conversion – petition link here:
*petition since acknowledged by governors, after contact from local councillors, but still no indication that the consultation is likely to be extended.
The neighborhoods of Allston and Brighton in the city of Boston have a large population of skateboarders of all ages, with few safe and legal places to skateboard. The western corner of Ringer Park is an ideal location for a concrete skatepark.
By signing this petition you show your support for skateboarding in Allston, Boston. This interest will raise awareness with city and state officials, and increase the chances for permanent facility to be constructed in Ringer Park.
Congress is currently sitting on the decision of whether or not to extend Unemployment Benefits to many states across the country. The extension of this program will help those families and individuals who are currently out of work and actively searching for jobs. By providing this assistance to citizens we are keeping thousands of people off the streets and in livable conditions.
If this extension does not pass, many people will be into positions where they could lose their transportation, housing and dignity.
I believe that there should be a TfL extension into the surrounding areas of Greater London, this includes Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, Cheshunt, London Colney etc. This doesn't have to include the whole transport network, but it would be excellent if surrounding areas could at least have the London Bus service with oyster readers.
This would ideally increase money for TfL and it'd really create more commuter links into London and be more affordable. We may have standard train services but they only run every 30 minutes, sometimes an hour, and I believe that a more efficient and faster service would be favoured!
The Sweetwater County Commissioners have cut their portion of the funding to the University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Office and will be closing all of the programs it offers to the county, including the local 4-H program.
The 4-H program has for generations, provided programs to the children of Sweetwater County, as well as contributing most of the exhibits and livestock at the Sweetwater County Fair. Children can participate in projects ranging from raising livestock such as beef, pigs, goats, sheep, poultry and rabbits to leadership, robotics, shooting sports, gardening, and many more.
Please help us keep this funding for the youth of Sweetwater County.
We, the undersigned, petition the supervisors of West Providence Township to condemn and have removed the house located at Hollar's Extension in West Providence Township in the town of Everett, PA.
This house was in a fire many years ago. No one has lived in it since that time. The owners purchased a mobile home and placed it on the property next to this burned out house. The house has been deteriorating since it burned. It now has broken windows, a front porch that is ready to cave in, and a roof that is rotting away.
This house is not only a nuisance, it is a hazard. Roofing is ready to fall off which could hurt an individual or damage others' property. The broken windows could entice individuals to try to enter the house and they could be injured. This house also attracts rodents and stray animals that can cause problems to other individuals living in the neighborhood.
This house hurts property values in the neighborhood. Many in the neighborhood have done improvements to their homes, only to learn that the property value has to be decreased because of this house. The tax value, however, remains the same on these properties. This devaluation is not fair to the rest of the individuals that live in this neighborhood.
The housing targets for Gloucestershire over the next 18 years are 56,400 houses as imposed by the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) for the South West.
We believe this is excessive and completely unsustainable, the need is unproven and that it will cause greenfield and greenbelt land to be built on unnecessarily. The target relies on economic growth per year of 3.2% (very doubtful in current circumstances), and a high ratio of homes per job of 1.5 (it was 1.39 between 1991 and 2004). The target also relies on attracting many workers from other parts of country and abroad to jobs that do not yet exist and it is doubtful could be created.
We believe a local need should be proven and the focus should be on affordable homes within existing towns and villages. As such we believe the target should be substantially reduced.
The brownland first strategy has been abandoned by the RSS and this will lead to the destruction of greenfield sites because they are cheaper to develop and so are particularly attractive for developers wishing to maximise profit.
The resulting sprawl caused by Urban Extensions will cause loss of wildlife, loss of recreation space, loss of the historic character of towns and villages, increased flooding, increased CO2 emissions and increased traffic.
We believe that if the targets are reduced, a brownland first strategy is maintained and local need is proven before building, then the destruction of greenfield sites and urban sprawl can be avoided.
No 1 Manor Mount wishes to demolish the back and side of a Victorian dwelling and build a four story extension to the back and a three storey extension to the side to turn a family home into a large block of flats.
This will lie directly beside No 1 1/2 Manor Mount a small Victorian Coach House and cause considerable impact, not only to this house but to the surrounding properties.

Hackney council has asked local residents for their opinion on the development and extension of a derelict warehouse at 53b Carysfort Road.
This petition was created in protest of the Class of 2006 Senior Gift Scholarship, which won second place to that of Root Glen extension.
The Root Glen extension rightfully won the popular vote and should therefore be pursued.

This petition is now closed.

The number 28 Route runs hourly between Morrisons, Evesham to Stratford-Upon-Avon Bridge Street. However on the school bus for this route which leaves Stratford at 4:00 terminates at Evesham Bus Station. The bus station is nothing more than 6 bus stops.
It would make great sense to continue on for the rest of the route, where the 28 would start as the normal 28 bus from Morrisons, Evehsam but instead it starts at Evesham Bus Station and is not a place where the buses are stored or kept.
I have seen at least 20 people who catch the bus from Morrisons, Evesham, and that was just in one day all getting on at the same time.
Sept. 30 could be the beginning of economic doom for our coal producing states if Congress does not take action to extend a federal program that mining reclamation supports 45,000 retired miners benefits.
The Abandoned Mine Land, or AML, is a program created in 1977, when it passed the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act.
Under the program, coal operators pay 35 cents tax per ton of surface-mined coal and 15 cents per ton of underground-mined coal. The money is used to clean up coal mines that were abandoned before 1977.
If that happens, thousands of abandoned mine sites mostly in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky would go unreclaimed.
Currently the AML is languishing on capital hill and set to expire at the end of September
Without congressional action, the coal tax that funds mine cleanups would expire Sept. 30.
As a result, more than $2 billion worth of high-priority coal reclamation will remain unreclaimed, leaving millions of people who live, work and recreate in the nation's coalfields to continue to be exposed to the many dangers these areas represent.
Tax payers of coal producing states could be forced to pay for the clean-up, instead of the coal operators. The state is already in a budget crisis and paying for this would sink the Bluegrass in to a much deeper deficit - one that potentially we would never find our way out of.
Lawmakers and Interior's Office of Surface Mining have showed great humanitarianism by allowing AML money to fund infrastructure projects like health-care benefits (UMWA Orphan Funds) for retired miners who have fallen between the cracks by coal corporation bankruptcies.
On Aug. 31 in Lexington, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge William Howard finalized the decision allowing Horizon Natural Resources to file bankruptcy, thus voiding union contracts providing health care coverage for nearly 3,000 employees, including 2,300 retirees -- many of whom suffer from black lung as a result of their working years at Horizon. Many of these affected by the decision are Kentuckians who's only hope for health care is for the AML to continue.
Cutting off the health care benefits provided by the tax could not only devastate thousands of retired coal miners lives, but also be detrimental to the state's local economies who's doctors and pharmacies main source of income is treatment of these miners.
Congress Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., with support of House Democrats, took the first step Sept. 14 to stave off the end of the federal program. Sen. Byrd won Senate Appropriations Committee approval to extend a tax that funds the cleanup program for another nine months, but so far no outward support has been shown by House Republicans to save the issue.
The current extension calls for 9 months, but House Republicans have agreed to this measure by cutting the tax 75% - a drastic reduction in the amount of money to fund the miners health care plans and for money to repair the environmental damage done by the coal operators.
The far reaching effects of letting the AML languish and die could spell disaster for the all coal producing states if an extension is not granted.
I will use this issue to evaluate your commitment to working families in America. I await your prompt response.
Water Extension and Upgrade! Our well water is unfit to drink or cook with. When they removed the coal off the landin this area it affected the quailty of our water supply. We also would like to have the water lines upgraded so that the residents that do have water would have better pressure.
UNH Cooperative extension is in jeopardy, and needs more funding if it is to continue. All 4-H programs will be directly affected, and could end 4-H as we know it!
