Residents and other campaigners have already set up an action group and Facebook page to challenge what they see as the proposed wanton destruction of valuable ecological woodlands and a place that their children have played in for generations. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1716095181991040/ Objections to this proposed crime against nature may be sent into the Council and must be received before 3 November 2016. http://pa.sefton.gov.uk/online-applications/ It is a natural wooded area with legally-protected wildlife and it is effectively the green lungs of the local community in George Drive.
