On behalf of Roland Wilkinson:
Staverton Parish council have, in what I can only describe as moment of complete madness, decided to sell off their Wildlife and Conservation area to a the owner of an adjoining Industrial site without even consult the local villagers about the action.
The sale will go through later next month unless the council can be persuaded to change their mind by Wednesday 3rd December at their next meeting.
There is a petition at https://www.change.org/p/staverton-parish-council-to-reverse-their-....
There is also a bit more information on the site there. Please do also tell the council what you think of the proposal and ask them to reconsider by writing to the clerk of the council email@example.com and make sure you ask her to send your email on to all councillors.
There is already a paper petition with well over 100 signatures on from local residents but we need more people who care about the area and care too about the principal of sell off special places over the heads of those who live there.
If you can come to the beginning of the council meeting at Landscove Victory Hall at 6.30 on Wednesday that would be great too.
Please be in touch if you have any question either by email or phone 01803 762255.
And please tell as many friends or members of your family as you can as we need all the help we can get on this one.
