Protect the UK’s countryside and coast from post-lockdown damage
The Government should fund nationwide and sustained countryside public behaviour messaging and education including: messaging ahead of the current lockdown ending, an ongoing campaign directed at staycationers, and a sustained education initiative, thus creating a lasting legacy.
Remember the almost daily news headlines and images of how our natural beauty spots were being abused?
The 2020 hit-and-run approach for holidays had a serious, negative effect on the countryside and coastline with mass littering, fly-camping, graffiti and fire being caused by visitors simply unaware of the impact they were having. We earnestly do not want a repeat of this for the upcoming season as delicate environments cannot sustain the level of degradation they received last year.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
