To STOP the proposed development of a clay pit and waste recycling facility situated within an area of beautiful West Sussex woodland.

1620661181_img_4225.jpgLoxwood Clay Pits Ltd have plans to turn a site of established native woodlands into a claypit and waste recycling facility with an estimated 33 year lifespan. Shocked? You should be!

We are a local volunteer community action group, formed of concerned local residents.  We are committed to opposing the proposed development in Pallinghurst Woods, near Loxwood in West Sussex.

 These woods are home to many species of birds, insects and mammals, bordered by green fields full of dairy cows, as well as being a diverse natural beauty spot which is used daily by many local residents and visitors from further afield - dog walkers, ramblers, cyclists and horseriders. 

1620663195_image.jpgAll this may be about to change if Loxwood Clay Pits Ltd are successful in their bid to get planning permission to undertake a 5 day a week operation, 1.3km within the heart of Pallinghurst Woods.

We care passionately about the incredible surroundings we live in, but we really need YOUR help!

Our key aims are simple : 
- to oppose any planning applications made by Loxwood Clay Pits Ltd, and their agent Protreat, for any form of development in Pallinghurst Woods;
- to ensure the local community is fully aware of the threat to the woodland and local environment and give it a voice;
 - to share with local community robust, planning-policy-related reasons to object once a planning application (expected Spring 2021) has been submitted, based on expert commissioned research.
