Askham Bog near York is under threat from proposed development nearby.

We're opposing this development as we believe it will irreversibly damage the wildlife and biodiversity of this special nature reserve.

Over 7000 people have now supported our objection - a truly amazing response.

The online petition has now closed. However there is still time to write to City of York Council with your views.  Please email planning.comments@york.gov.uk or write to Ms A Stockdale, Economy and Place Directorate, City of York Council, West Offices, Station Rise, York, YO1 6GA. It may be useful to quote reference number 18/02687/FULM.

We have put together an official objection to the development. In addition, we have a hydrology report on Askham Bog demonstrating the impact on development on the hydrology of the nature reserve. See them below:

Sir David Attenborough explains why Askham Bog is so important, and so irreplaceable.

We're also fundraising to ensure that Askham Bog can be enjoyed for generations to come. Any donations are greatly appreciated. #SaveAskhamBog
