Campaign to stop the A350 Westbury Eastern Bypass &
for a better environment in West Wiltshire

LATEST NEWS: The A350 Westbury Eastern bypass is back on the map!
ALERT: New consultation on Wiltshire Core Strategy

Under Threat : Biss Wood, Spring 2011 If current plans go ahead this ancient woodland will be joined by new planting to the Wildlife Trust's Green Lane Wood, to the north, and the whole area opened up to public access from the massive housing estate on Green Lane. Development would come close to the edge of both woods.

The White Horse Alliance is a coalition of organisations campaigning to preserve the countryside around Westbury in Wiltshire and in the Wellhead Valley, which is at the foot of the Westbury White Horse Escarpment. We successfully defeated a proposal for a new road, the A350 Westbury Bypass when the Government rejected it in July 2009 after a public inquiry the previous year.

We continue to work for a better plan for transport and the environment in West Wiltshire and the region. The Wellhead Valley and its endangered wildlife remain vulnerable to urban sprawl and road building. The immediate need is for Wiltshire County Council's Core Strategy – a development plan to 2026, to address these concerns. We are also pursuing longer term strategic goals including extending landscape protection for the area, and ensuring environmental policies from the European Union are enforced.
