Astonbury Wood has been put up for sale by Hertfordshire County Council. Aston Parish Council have launched an e-petition on the Herts County Council website asking the County Council to sell the woodland only to a person or organisation that clearly demonstrates that their ownership will:
- Maximise the social and environmental benefit to the local community; encouraging greater recreational involvement and continued public use of the woodland
- Focus on increasing the extent and quality of all the habitats and biodiversity in the woodland
- Have the capability and resources to maintain and operate the wood on a sustainable basis
They need at least 250 signatures to be able to raise their concerns at a County Council meeting, so please click on the link, register and sign the petition.
The e-petition closes on 29 January 2021.
As every signature counts, a couple should each register and sign individually.
Please share the link with as many other interested people as you can who live or work in Hertfordshire.
