Your Petitions today... open (and recently closed) Petitions in descending order of numbers of signatures.

This seems to be pie-in-the-sky, there is no current planning permission application.

68,491 against restrictions on photography in public places.
HMG deny there are any such proposals.

67,870 to have student loan interest repayments deducted monthly.
HMG point out that the deductions are made monthly.

60,508 to continue funding for the Red Arrows.
Tony says there are no plans to do otherwise.

40,619 to repeal the Hunting Act 2004.
The first petition on the list, it seems, which refers to reality.

14,344 for a Referendum on the EU Constitution.

13,477 to make Jeremy Clarkson the Prime Minister.

And among the closed Petitions, there is the one against a road pricing policy which got 1,811,345 signatures.
