The Heart of Sherwood Forest is under attack from a band of corporate 
thieves and the Sheriff of Nottingham isn't lifting a finger. The 
thieves, Bellway, are attempting to destroy a group of ancient trees 
and a natural meadowland to build an unnecessary road junction. The 
area is supposedly guarded by a Tree Protection Order as it possesses 
a 300 year old beech tree yet the council are refusing to take any 
action against the developers.

This is some of the last remaining green space in the area and it's 
being surveyed as a possible EU site of conservation. There's a 
desperate need for Robin Hoods and merry men and women to steal the 
power from the rich and give it back to the poor trees.

Not ONE person who has ever looked at the plans ON SITE has ever said 
that this should go ahead. No one can justify this madness.

What is more - we have found out that proper planning procedures have 
NOT been followed. Local people were kept in the dark about the plan, 
and we have decided to occupy the site.

What makes this even harder to bear is that WE are paying for this 
destruction!! European funding and UK Taxes are being given to 
Bellway Homes as part of this development.
