Sustainable Warminster started this petition to Wiltshire Council (Leader of Wiltshire Council)

Warminster is soon to lose another important area of green space if Wiltshire Council give the go-ahead to the building of 28 houses at the proposed Damask Way site.  See the application here  20/07214/REM

Join the Town Council, the Wildlife Trust, Sustainable Warminster and many of Warminster's residents and say no to more destruction of important local biodiversity!

This site is an important habitat for migration, hibernation, commuting and foraging for many protected and rare species. These include bats, otters, water voles, insects and a large but threatened population of common toads, along with many other species of flora and fauna. The whole area forms an important connection between various different habitats such as ponds, woodland, rivers, marsh, and grassland allowing wildlife to move freely and safely between them.

Adjoining the Smallbrook Meadows nature reserve this important area of grassland also borders a Special Area of Conservation, has a chalk bed river that runs along its edge and it's neighbouring woods lie within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A footpath across the land allows Warminster residents and visitors to walk from town, taking in a wonderful view of Salisbury Plain and on through to Henford Marsh and Southleigh woods.

At a time when we are all being told to look after our planet and protect our biodiversity and the environment, we cannot let this important space be lost forever to luxury housing. Let's keep this area, its wildlife, its plants and trees, its view and the connecting route between town and countryside for future generations to enjoy.
