Precious ancient woods and their wildlife are now safe from the threat of the M4 to A48 link road outside Cardiff.
In December 2020, many of you joined our call to reject four potential road options posed by Vale of Glamorgan Council to address congestion issues and help future growth in the region.
The Welsh Government has decided not to provide funding for the project under the new Wales Transport Strategy, Llwybr Newydd. The council will no longer be pursuing the plans further at this time. This means all seven of the ancient woods affected by the different route options are safe once more.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part in our campaign to protect these irreplaceable ancient woodlands, but especially to Vale Communities for Future Generations, the local community group who supported our campaign.
