The opening paragraph in the Ecologist’s article:
A 5,000-house development has just won planning permission on a SSSI nature area in Kent which is home to over 1% of the UK’s nightingales. It violates government planning policies, and ministers have the power to stop it. But will they? Yes they will, writes Martin Harper – provided enough people show they care!
Please show your support for the nightingales and the Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) by asking Eric Pickles to call in the decision. If you live in the constituency of Rochester and Strood, please also contact Mark Reckless, MP and ask him to help persuade Eric Pickles to call in the decision. Thank you.
