Irreplaceable ancient woods and trees near Cardiff are under threat from new road building.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council wants to build a new road to help with quicker access to Cardiff airport and its wider development plans. Two route options have been put forward. The Eastern Route threatens six ancient woods, charging through the majority of them. The Western Route threatens seven.
This is unacceptable.
We’re calling on the council to reconsider these options and make sure they are not destroying precious ancient woods.
The consultation closed on 17 July. Please check back for updates on this campaign.
