Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead: Prosecute those responsible for illegal destruction of protected woodland

Granny Kettle Wood can be found in Sunningdale, Berkshire, and comprises more than 40 acres of beautiful woodland habitat. It is situated along a stream corridor linking Bracknell Forest with Windsor Great Park and is an incredible wildlife haven and loved by the local community. Granny Kettle Wood is protected by a blanket tree preservation order and is a designated Local Wildlife Site.

Illegal clearfelling of one acre of protected woodland took place in May 2012. We believe that this criminal act was carried out in order to facilitate the approval of a planning application for a mansion on the site of the destruction. Evidence for this can be seen at

Developers that illegally destroy protected woodland should be prosecuted and not rewarded with planning consent.
