More details from petition creator

Chobham Common is one of the finest remaining examples of lowland heath in the world, let alone England. Of international, national and local importance, it is a National Nature Reserve, SSSI, Special Protection Area, and Site of Nature Conservation Importance. There are public rights to walk and ride. Runnymede Borough Council’s draft Plan removes 310 acres from the Green Belt at the DERA site, right next to the Common, in order to build houses. This will have a devastating effect on the land and the Common's wildlife. This has come about from the South East Plan requiring houses to be built there. But the SE Plan has been abolished, so there is now no justification to put the Common at risk by building 1500 houses right next door. The draft Plan waxes lyrical about the importance and fragility of the Green Belt, its vital role in separating urban areas, and providing open space for nature conservation. But when that designation is inconvenient to RBC, it just proposes to remove it, rather than respect the permanency of the Green Belt and work round it. The plan to build here must be abandoned and the way to ensure this happens is to keep the site in the Green Belt.
