Don't let Gallagher destroy Oaken Woods to fill his pocket

Whether you have heard about this or not decisions have been made to allow a quarrying company Gallagher, to take over 70 acres of woodland behind barming to put plastic explosives into the ground and extract ragstone.

"On balance, however, members felt the job prospects and the economic need for ragstone to support construction in the county in future, and benefits of the project, outweighed these objections."~Committee leader Richard King, Ashford

As well as the loss of a valuable ecosystem and ancient woodland, a lot of people that enjoy the woodland will no longer be able to.

Children, cyclists,dog-walkers, photgraphers, artists and everyone else that values the woods, sign this petition to show the government that the economic gain is outweighed by the cost to people's happiness.
