Can you donate today to help us win a 'brownfield first' policy?

Dear John

Right now, movements like Extinction Rebellion are waking people up to the
urgent need to take better care of our environment and finite resources. With
your help, we can make the conversation about sustainability and recycling much
BIGGER – and help save the countryside we all need and love.

We want the government to understand that we must avoid single-use land as well
as single-use plastics.

The best way to do this is with a ‘brownfield first’ policy that ensures
previously developed land is recycled before our green spaces are even
considered for development.

That way, we can build the homes people need, where they need them, revitalising
our towns and cities - while also protecting our countryside.

We urgently need your help to win a ‘brownfield first’ policy.

[[link removed]]We persuaded the government to commit to a ‘brownfield first’ policy back in
1998 and just 10 years later, almost 80% of new homes were being built on previously developed land. But it wasn’t to

In 2011, the coalition government decided to revoke that brilliant policy,
triggering a sharp decline in the number of homes built on brownfield land.

Now it's down to just 53%.

The decision to drop ‘brownfield first’ has been a disaster for our green fields
and for all of us. In 2017 alone, an area of countryside the size of Liverpool
was lost – countryside we all value for enriching our lives and the environment.

What’s really frustrating is that this scale of loss is unnecessary. We’ve
proved time and again that there’s enough brownfield land to accommodate one
million new homes, without losing a single green field.

This can’t go on. Will you help us win back a ‘brownfield first’ policy and
protect our countryside?

[[link removed]] The public mood is to see real change on environmental issues – and fast. We
must take advantage of this momentum.

Together, we can persuade the government to bring back a ‘brownfield first’
policy NOW - to benefit our countryside and communities for generations to come.

We’ve done it before, let’s do it again. Thank you for helping to make the
government think BIGGER about our land and our future.

Best wishes,
