I beg leave to present a petition promoted and organised by Dr. Kevin Feltham of Kibworth Harcourt and signed by almost 2,000 residents of the parishes of Kibworth Beauchamp, Kibworth Harcourt and Smeeton Westerby in the Harborough constituency, expressing concern about the threat of large-scale new development in the green belt and countryside.

The petition states:

The petition of the residents of Harborough declares that we are concerned about the decisions to sanction plans for new development throughout the countryside.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions to ensure that more homes are built in city areas instead of the countryside or green belt, to breathe new life into our cities and to protect valuable countryside for future generations.
And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
