Yet another road widening case threatens ancient woodland

During this economic downturn the Government seem intent on pushing through as much infrastructure development as possible.  Of course we want to see the UK brought out of this recession, yet it appears it is our natural environment which must pay the price.  Fresh from the devastating loss of our own Two Mile Coppice earlier this year, our Woods Under Threat team is now facing another “road improvement scheme” which would further damage another ancient wood.
