New housing proposals would destroy an area of woodland larger than Lion Wood

Socially Conscious Capitals (SCC) revised plans for 300 houses in Thorpe Wood have been portrayed as having little impact on the woods. The plans envisage building over an area that would cover 10 hectares.

SCC are keen to downplay the significance of 10 hectares or 25 acres, however to give some idea as to how much woodland would be destroyed by this proposal it is worth bearing in mind that Lion Wood, just off Harvey Lane, only cover 9.2 hectares.
Lion Wood: the new plans would destroy an area of woodland larger than the whole of these woods
The truth is that this unwanted housing scheme would destroy an area of english woodland bigger than Lion Wood,this proposed development would have a disastrous effect on the ecology of Thorpe Woods.
