Woodland Threatened

The land proposed in the Option M corridor is shown to contain a large amount of Ancient Woodland and other woodland extensions at the margins of the stands of Ancient Woodland.

Of major concern is the pinch point between the north boundary of Wanborough Wood and the south boundary of Highfield Copse, in particular Week Wood. The Option M route boundary drawn around Wanborough Wood appears to force the likelihood of part the woodland of Week Wood on its south side to be cleared to enable any haul road and trenching. This is unacceptable. 

Much of the local wood stands are habitat for a local deer population and any civil engineering activity would represent a major disturbance and loss of habitat for a normally shy species. The southern boundary of Option M at this point appears to cut directly across the AGLV land that lies between Grubground Copse and Wanborough Wood leading to some woodland clearing should a path be forced here. This is unacceptable.

Where the boundary approaches from the west and strikes north from its touch point on the ancient woodland of Highfield Copse, the boundary passes directly through properties to the end of Beech Lane at Beech Tree Farm. It is totally unacceptable to propose laying through private gardens. To route outside the boundary to the west of Beech Lane would damage the ancient woodland of Highfield Copse and this is also unacceptable.
