Helen Kirk has drawn my attention to a petition on the 38 DEGREES SITE which aims to protect common land at Westwood near Beverley from temporary access to Developers wishing to develop the old Beverley Westwood Hospital site which may set a precedent for further access by other developers in the future, which could irreparably damage the site.

Although not local I would suggest that we should support the petition as you never know when we might need similar support for something locally.
