Natalie Boorman started this petition to Dartford borough council

As local residents are aware, Dartford is steadily becoming a concrete jungle with much of the green areas disappearing. This is having an extremely negative impact on both air quality and furthermore the wonderful wildlife that once called these sites their home.


Cotton Marshes is a wildlife gem tucked behind the river path, by the QE2 Bridge. This nature haven is under threat as a developer has been granted an extension to their 1983 planning permission, enabling them to build industrial units on the site. This will result in the destruction of the habitats of precious Nightingales, Reed Buntings, Sedge & Cetti warblers, a vast variety of butterfly breeds, including ringlets as well as the ever declining bumble bee population.


The work has already begun, however it is not too late to save this treasured little reed bed and grass land, as the land will restore itself and the areas biodiversity will regenerate once again. Without wild patches like this one, Dartford will lose much of its butterfly’s, Bee’s & Birdlife between new housing, road extensions and modern farming techniques.  
Please sign and share this petition to stop the development work on this area for good and to give this site the recognition and protection it deserves!
