Deviock Parish Council appeals for community support to protect woodland in Seaton, Cornwall.

by Deviock Parish Council in Torpoint, Cornwall, United Kingdom

Deviock Parish Council is pleased to announce that pre-auction negotiations to secure this land (both plots) have been successful and that contracts were exchanged today!

This was only possible as a result of the extraordinary response to this Crowdfunder campaign which, together with our earmarked reserves for land, took us over the line ahead of a competitive auction.

Thank you to all who have contributed so generously, to our partners who responded rapidly and effectively to support the remarkable efforts of Parish Councillors on the ground here, and to the media who have generated interest and awareness.

It is less than two weeks since we set out to secure this land and we are delighted that it is now protected for the benefit of residents, visitors and future generations.

We look forward to working with Cornwall Wildlife Trust and other supporters on a sustainable, long term management plan for this habitat and its wildlife.

Thank you!
