Thanet Countryside Trust Pledge Support
The Thanet Countryside Trust field officers visited the land on Westbrook Promenade (proposed Village Green) today. They have identified rare grasses and several other plant species. The conclusion is that this land should be saved from development. They are going to continue their studies into the spring and summer as more plants appear. Pieces of land on the coast like this are important to nature particularly insects and birds. This particular site would be ideal to develop biodiversity and become a nature reserve.
I would like to thank the trust for their support also their intention to help us lobby the council.
In the meantime here are some of the delights to look forward to in the spring and summer (pictures taken last year).
The campaign continues to save this special place for the continued enjoyment of local people. Support is growing day by day.
