Not content with destroying our wildlife rich brownfield sites and scrublands, developers are now after our community woodlands. A company called Gleeson Strategic Land Limited is proposing a development of 121 houses on Bloors Lane Community Woodland an important site for wildlife and local people.
If developments like this are allowed to go ahead then it will green light a raft of proposals to develop local nature reserves and country parks.
The company claim the woodland is under used. Under used by who? It is a valuable resource for hedgehogs, field voles and woodland birds struggling to survive as our countryside and their routes through it are swallowed up by concrete.
Medway Council should do the right thing and stop this proposal before it even has the chance to get started.
