Horrified by woods plans

I am horrified at the proposal to build a McDonalds, Brewers Fayre and Premier Inn on the Moreton Park woods site.

Britain is one of the most treeless countries in the whole of Europe by a long way. We can ill afford to lose anymore trees, especially in Bideford where there is only one small piece of publicly-accessible forest.

While I am not advocating the companies mentioned do not develop somewhere in or near the town, to cut down one of the last remaining pieces of woodland would be short sighted and in my mind not in the public interest.

I for one will do what I can to prevent this crime against nature and common sense.
