WHAT'S ALREADY

HAPPENED?

300 Acres of Loxwood woodland crossed by public bridlepaths and footpaths are owned by Loxwood Clay Pits Ltd (Company number 10729828).

 

The same Directors appear to own Loxwaste Ltd (Company number 10811990), a skip hire company. 

LCP have appointed Protreat Ltd (Company number 07658884), to act as their agent. 

 

19 acres of this woodland, 1.3KM down forest tracks into the native broadleaved oak and ash woodland could be changed forever by commercial mineral, principally, clay extraction.

(15 acres for extraction, 19 acres when including all the buildings, and recycling area)

A new building to house a waste recycling facility for construction and demolition waste would be sited at the end of the foresty road.

HGV's would skip waste in and remove waste for resale following recycling.

Pre-planning public consultation webinars were held in August, October and December 2020 by Protreat. 

If you missed them, they can be found on the Loxwood Clay Pits Ltd website. 

 

In the first week of January 2021, new access gates were put up across the woodland, as threatened by Protreat during the consultation.  

 

ACT NOW

StopTheClayPit are a group of local volunteers, including experienced and successful ecology campaigners. Our aim is to uncover the relevant policy related reasons to object to any planning application that could affect the woodlands. 

Planning is expected in Spring 2021.

Until then you can show your support to save the woodland by:.
