Save Ancient English Wood from Quarry – via Care2

See full petition at Care2 here.

Oaken Wood in Kent is one of the few remaining scraps of ancient woodland in England and home to a diversity of rare wildlife ranging from firecrests to orchids.

It is now set to be destroyed by the expansion of a stone quarry. Permission has just been granted for the Hermitage quarry to expand by another 80 acres, effectively destroying the woodland for the sake of building materials.

Oaken Wood could be the first of many casualties arising as a result of new planning regulations, which apparently provide little or any real protection for the UK’s natural heritage.  The UK’s self-proclaimed “greenest government ever” seems instead to be waging a continued war on wildlife.

Tell the UK government to save Oaken Wood from completely unnecessary development.
