Cllr Ian Mackie Fights to Save Thorpe St Andrew Woods

Norwich Conservative Councillors Ian Mackie and John Fisher have urged Broadland MP to rethink plans over a development in their local community. 

'Thorpe St Andrew councillors John Fisher and Ian Mackie both urged the owners to save the woods.

Mr Mackie said: "The collective view is to request that the owners think again given the national and local context. There is now much greater awareness and activity around preserving woodland."

"They have spent a fortune trying to get planning permission and I would imagine they would be looking to get a return on their investment."'
