We need your help to protect this special place

The council(s) responsible for the Lammas Lands have proposed to build a 4m wide compound or raised cycle track through the functional floodplain meadows and across the river as part of the Godalming Greenway project. The proposed development would flow traffic directly from the A3100 down into this designated site of nature conservation importance, and would potentially be an ecological disaster for this protected area.

There would be a necessity for these paths to be both lit and protected from both noise and refuse. We believe this is not possible while maintaining the delicate natural habitat that forms a key part of what makes Godalming special.

10 Year Lammas Lands Management Plan (2017)

The report lays out a range of prescriptions with the aim of maintaining and improving the site for people and wildlife. Which we believe are in direct conflict with the current proposals!
