Motion text

That this House recognises the significance of tranquillity and its importance to quality of life; is concerned that many areas are under severe pressure from encroaching greenfield development, light pollution and road and air traffic; acknowledges the importance of urban parks and suburban gardens as pockets of relative tranquillity in urban environments; praises the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) for creating and developing a quantified, evidenced and robust way of measuring tranquillity across the country; welcomes the measures proposed, with cross-party support, in the Rural Tranquillity Bill; and calls upon the Government to measure tranquillity through a system similar to the one the CPRE has developed, publish the results annually, and amend planning policy to protect, preserve and enhance tranquillity in future.
