Save The Wick

Save The Wick

Remove Middlewick Ranges from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) list of MOD land for sale as housing development.

Why is this important?

Middlewick Ranges (The Wick) have never been built on. Their extensive - and nationally declining - grassland and other habitats support protected birds and nationally scarce species including beetles, butterflies, moths, bats, snakes, lizards, mammals and plants. Local people - mainly from council estates - have walked The Wick for leisure, research and relaxation for 100 years or more.

How it will be delivered
