On Friday, 10th May, a stretch of woodland was totally destroyed by a gang of men armed with chainsaws. This land belongs to British Furtex, which has, allegedly, been sold to Britannia Homes. Residents met with local ward councillors on Saturday to voice their strong objections. Friends of the Earth and the Forestry Commission are also investigating. A popular public footpath runs alongside this area, accessed from Danny Lane.We feel that organisations and individuals should know what has happened so that they, too, can voice their concerns.
