To the House of Commons. 

The petition of the residents of the United Kingdom

Declares that the proposals outlined in Medway Council’s Housing Infrastructure Fund project to build a relief road and community-destructive flyover should be rejected due to their unsuitability and potential for the plans to damage the environment by destroying a key ‘Asset of Community Value’, Deangate Ridge and Sports Complex and Lodge Hill SSSI.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ensure that plans to build a relief road from A228 Peninsula Way to A289  Hasted Road via a flyover at Higham Road, through the former Deangate Ridge and Sports Complex and Lodge Hill SSSI be rejected and the former Deangate Ridge and Sports Complex be developed as an asset that would further the social wellbeing and social interests of the local community, such as a Country Park. 

And the petitioners remain, etc.
