Save Langdale Wood

Please vote against Proposal 16/01771/FUL for 50 lodges and a reception building in Langdale Wood.

Why is this important?

This proposed development in Langdale Wood will have a huge impact on trees, tree roots and vegetation, plus great disturbance to many birds, butterflies and other insects. It will greatly reduce the amount of woodland available for local families to enjoy and add to the traffic problems at Blackmore Park Road.

There is no evidence that this development will bring any additional significant benefit to Malvern but may have a negative impact on existing accommodation providers and local camp sites as well as damaging and reducing the Woodland.

Please support our campaign to get this development halted and protect our Malvern woodland.

Reasons for signing

  • These holidaylodges fly in the face of any sort of environmental concern. I have seen how parts of the forest in Forest of Dean have been spoilt by a similar development at Christchurch. The development offers nothing for Malvern people or their housing issues and just allows anyone who can afford the high prices of holiday rental to park up their cars in a glorified housing estate that has trashed the wildlife that currently exists.
  • This is a beautiful natural wood which can be enjoyed by all, without commercialisation. A great place for natural habitat to survive and an excellent area for well behaved dogs to be excercised and socialised off the lead.
  • A lovely bit of woodland with nesting buzzards. Apart from the loss of the woods the traffic down this road can be gridlocked at times when there's something popular on at the showground, this proposal can only make matters worse.

Thanks so much for your support! We now have 1253 signatures and are lining up panel members for the public meeting at 7pm on the 7th December at Hanley Castle Village Hall. We will be in touch soon to let you know the date that Malvern Hills District Council are voting on this proposed development so that you can contact your local counsellor with your objection to this "for profit" attack on our beautiful woodland. Our campaigners are almost ready to post the "Save Langdale Wood" objection to the development, which is a detailed rebuttal of the planning application amalgamated by all of your comments and objections. We aim to put this in over the next few days. Please visit or email us at for further information.

Keep your chins up!

Kind regards
