Preserving Piles Coppice Wood

Volume 686: debated on Thursday 17 December 2020

5 pm

I rise to present a petition on behalf of the residents of Coventry South regarding Piles Coppice wood, an area of woodland to the south-east of Coventry. There is an online petition on the same topic, which has been signed by just under 1,500 people.

The petition states:

The petition of residents of the constituency of Coventry South,

Declares that Piles Coppice Wood is a valuable remnant of ancient woodland that is home to rare and beautiful wildlife and vegetation; and notes residents’ fear that Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s plans would damage the woodland.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to preserve this ancient woodland and protect our natural environment.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
