UPDATE - Stop the destruction of Hollicarrs Wood

Hollicarrs Holiday Park was initially established when permission was granted for over 150 lodges, and associated facilities, to be built on 10 hectares of the ancient Hollicarrs Wood. Now the owners of Escrick Park Estate have applied to Selby District Council to build on more ancient woodland.

The extension to Hollicarrs Holiday Park includes the siting of 67 caravans and associated facilities on a further six hectares of ancient woodland.

Hollicarrs Wood is designated as a mix of Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland and Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS). They support a variety of important plants and animals and consist of a mix of both conifer and broadleaf species. In short, any further damage or loss is unacceptable.

Thank you for lending your voice

The extension that we were afforded for comments on this application has now passed. Thank you to all those who spoke up for Hollicarrs Wood and sent their email to Selby District Council. We’ll now be monitoring the application to keep you up to date on its progress.

What's the problem?
