There was recently a petition to the government for:

A417 Maisemore - To raise a section of road to help with flooding issues and reconnect the transport network

Click here for the result (it will open in a new window) - it attracted 691 signatures.

It was of course highly unlikely ever to get close to the 100,000 threshold which would have triggered a debate in the House of Commons and thus some people as a consequence might have suggested it was futile bothering to sign. "Why should I fill it in? - it's a waste of time...". However, we believed it would be a great asset for any discussion with people locally - not just with the relevant Members of Parliament, but also with councillors and services bodies. Indeed the raising of the road is now included as one of the projects in the draft Transport Plan albeit for 2021-2026.
