Large areas of Bostall woods have been appropriated and adapted as race courses by motorbike and mountain bike users causing irreparable damage. This activity is not compatible with the long term survival of this locally important ancient woodland. It compacts the soil, damages trees, disturbs ground flora, and can be noisy and dangerous to other users. 

We implore Greenwich Council to ensure that the Parks and Open Spaces Department is given increased investment so it is able to provide even more support to preventing such destruction. We ask that the Council recognize the importance of parks and open spaces to our community, especially evident during the pandemic and lockdown. 

In a climate and biodiversity emergency, Greenwich Council must commit to protecting existing trees and open spaces for their quiet enjoyment by all including wildlife and ensure that their destruction by a few is urgently brought to an end.
