Re: votes to save a woodland from the developers

Tony who's land is it?

I understand your sentiment, but before I could vote I would need to know more detail.

I took a look on FB, but could find no info on who's wood it is.

Re: votes to save a woodland from the developers

I'm not being funny, honest.

But just think if you were trying to sell some land that you had inherited, maybe you are very hard up and this is a chance to improve your lot and the lot of your family.

Maybe local people could raise the funds required to buy the woodland for the community, that way no one looses out???
