Stop the drilling for oil in this beautiful woodland that is a designated AONB.
Why is this important?
As an AONB, drilling for oil here would destroy this woodland and it's natural history habitat. But not only would the area of woodland be lost the access to the area is by minor roads, so the surrounding area may also be lost and destroyed as no doubt access roads and other infrastructure would be built to enable the recovery of oil.
At the moment there is a peaceful protest group ( Leith Hill Protection Camp) on site to prevent the drilling, but they have a High Court Judgement for eviction against them pending. When this is acted on there is no other form of prevention for drilling. Please act now!
