Local MP Maria Miller is urging Basingstoke residents who have not yet signed her Parliamentary Petition objecting to proposals for two separate motorway service areas to do so before the Monday 16 April deadline.
Maria said: “I launched this petition on 5 March to demonstrate Basingstoke residents’ concerns about these two separate proposals for new motorway service areas. Residents had told me of their concerns about road safety and congestion, and about damage to the environment. It is clear that these concerns are well founded.”
“Thousands of residents have already signed the petition, and I would encourage all those who wish to sign up and have their say, to do so before the deadline of Monday 16 April. As well as downloading the petition from my website, there will also be an opportunity to sign the petition from 12.00 noon to 1.00pm on Saturday 14 April, outside the Willis Museum at the Top of the Town.
After that, I will present the petition formally in Parliament. The more signatures we have, the greater the impact will be.”
Due to Parliamentary rules a hard copy of the petition must be signed, rather than an online version. Hard copies of the petition can be downloaded below and returned with signatures to Maria at the House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA, by Monday 16 April.
