31 hectares of ancient woodland in Kent are under threat from plans to quarry into Oaken Wood.
The public inquiry finished in December 2012. You can find out about our experience by reading our blog.
Over 6,500 of you helped us to convince Secretary of State Eric Pickles to ‘call in’ the planning application for a public inquiry to ensure the plans were examined in detail.
The Inspector is due to report to the Secretary of State by 22nd March 2013. The Secretary of State is then responsible for the final decision - as yet we have no date for this.
How you can continue to be part of the fight?
The inquiry is over but you can still support Oaken Wood. Funds are still needed to cover the costs for the our challenge at public inquiry.
By sending a donation now you will be helping us to fight for Oaken Wood, a rich and irreplaceable habitat.
We have been overwhelmed by your support so far! - with your help the Woodland Trust will do all it can to fight these plans. Thank you.
There is hope yet for Oaken Wood...
