Threat Detector – Woods under Threat – England (South-East, South-West and North)

Our ancient woodland is increasingly under threat from development, new roads and railways.  We need your help to keep abreast of planning applications registered across the South-East, South-West and the North of England and to analyse the impact of Local Development Plans on woods and trees.

Once planning applications that threaten ancient woodland are identified, we need to gather our evidence and formulate effective responses as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We need help to stop precious ancient woodland being destroyed. The best way to tackle this issue is with eyes and ears on the ground to alert us when threats arise.

This is a home-based volunteering role.  Training will be provided but knowledge of planning applications, map reading and the ability to carry out research would be advantageous.
