Rejected petition Prioritize housing development on brown field sites over green field. Blaenoriaethu maesydd brown

More and more of our green fields are being developed across Wales for new housing developments affecting our wildlife and increasing flood risks.
Brown field sites such as city or town centres should be developed with change of use for housing considered and developed firstly to reduce the impact on wildlife

Mae ein ffermydd a’n caeau gwyrdd yn diflannu ar gyfer adeiladu tai newydd. Ddylsai maesydd brown yn ein trefi a dinasoedd cael ei blaenoriaethu mewn unrhyw datblygiadau.
