Save the Forest in Forest Hill
Petition Background (Preamble):
This arcadian landscape is extensively wooded and has many old trees under tree preservation orders. This area is also one of the oldest and most established green sites in Forest Hill as it was once a Georgian garden. Before that it was part of the Great North Wood. To retain the character and identity of Forest Hill, we are strongly opposed to the proposed development of the site into flats which, as a green open space, currently improves the quality of life of everyone who lives, works and visits the area. It also sustains local biodiversity and wildlife.
We have seen the proposed plans and in our opinion, the development is unnecessarily large, too dense and entirely out of character with the surrounding environment.
There are a number of good planning arguments that can be used to protect this site from the proposed development and we would urge Lewisham Borough Council to reject the application on those grounds.
Please sign the petition and object to the Council by sending an email to email@example.com quoting reference DC/09/71953/X in the subject line, and include your name and address.

Photos of the site and of some of the very special wildlife that it supports can be found here:
