Don’t let our ancient woodland disappear…

When it comes to protecting irreplaceable, precious ancient woodland, we believe planning policy is as useless as a chocolate teapot.

Ancient woodland is not fully protected in the UK and more than 1,000 hectares have been destroyed in the last decade.

Over 500 ancient woods are under threat right now from planning applications for development including golf courses, campsites, roads, houses, sports facilities and car parks

We constantly have to defend these precious places. Planning policy is meant to protect them. In our experience, it’s failing miserably.

In fact, It’s about as useless as a chocolate teapot.

We need better protection for all ancient woodland today. Before it’s too late!
