Victory!

This 22,700-signature petition was passed to Councillor Caroline Horrill at the Full Council meeting on 22nd February along with a three-minute speech from our side, defending the woodland and the trails. Cabinet member Cllr Jan Warwick responded verbally amid 45 Councillors, the media and the public that "..the Bar End woodland location is 'off the table' as a location for the coach park". Official meeting minutes are not yet available however the press have already reported this decision as per the link below. This petition was the turning point in saving the trails and we'd like to sincerely thank all of you who took the time to sign and share it. The level of support was overwhelming - 20,000 signatures in the first week alone! Many thanks again and we hope that this can serve as an example for saving other trails / community assets / green spaces in future.
