- May I draw your attention to some of the relevant the facts about our parish:
- Landscape and Biodiversity
The Parish includes five Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs), a Ramsar Site, a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), part of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and 10 Key Wildlife Sites. The Rivers Severn and Wye have the second biggest tidal range in the world, with a 14m difference between mean low and mean high water at the parish boundaries.
The following details are taken from a study undertaken as part of the Forest of Dean Integrated Rural Development (IRD) programme which has mapped the biodiversity of the whole district.
Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)
• Severn Estuary – 15,950 ha
• Pennsylvania Fields, Sedbury 27.0 ha
The site represents the only example of brackish pastureland overlying alluvial soils in Gloucestershire, including some nationally rare plant species.
• Poor’s Allotment, Tidenham Chase 28.6 ha
• Shorn Cliff and Caswell Woods, opposite Tintern 69.2 ha
• Lower Wye Gorge, Woodcroft and Ban-y-Gor 29.2 ha
The woodlands of the lower Wye Valley form one of the most important areas for woodland conservation in Britain (comparable with the Caledonian pine-woods, the oceanic oakwoods of western Britain, the New Forest and the mixed coppices of East Anglia), including a number of nationally rare plant species. These woods sit in a matrix of unimproved grassland and other semi-natural habitats, which together make the Wye Valley one of the most diverse, rich and attractive areas in southern Britain.
Special Area of Conservation (SAC)
River Wye 2,234 ha
Key Wildlife Sites
• Lippets Grove GWT Nature Reserve, Tidenham Chase
• East Wood Limestone Pavement, GWT Nat. Res., Tidenham Chase
• Beachley Saltmarshes, Beachley Point
• Beachley Grassland, River Wye floodplain, Beachley
• Ridley Bottom GWT Nat. Res., Kelly’s Lane, Tidenham Chase
• Park Grove, Sedbury
• Redding Well Alderwood, Stroat

The Countryside Agency has announced that at some point in the future it will consider again the designation of parts of the Forest of Dean as an AONB, the Parish Council will need to consider this carefully if it is likely to impact on the Parish, or if there is wish to see additional parts of the parish designated as such.
In October 2005, as part of the implementation of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, in the West of England, including Gloucestershire, areas of Open Countryside and Registered Common Land become open to public access. In our parish this covers the natural heath area of Poor’s’ Allotment. Poor’s Allotment is managed by an independent charitable trust. Some of the area is rented for livestock grazing, adjacent to Park Hill Lane. The natural Heath area is managed by English Nature and is home to a number of significant species – both flora and fauna. Income from the Trust is used for the relief of need in the par

- Further may I draw your attention to the fact that in neither the Parish documentation, nor that of the Forest of Dean District Council plans nor even Government outline plan is there any plan or warning of the possibility of industrialising any area of this parishes nor any grant to abbrogate on our responsibility to protect the amenity, its visual aspect, nor significantly impact in a dilaterious manner and deliberately increase the danger for the many 10s of 1,000s who pass through it on the A48 Roman Road along the banks of the estuary, whether commercially, as residents or as tourists
We believe the information gathered on this site can act to bring the truth, regarding the dishonesty of the claimed benefits of Wind Turbines (WT) to the front of people’s minds as they are regularly taxed, in a hidden tax, on their energy bills to fund these politically correct and fundamentally all but useless monstrosities.
We have gathered a great deal of information in our efforts to prevent the industrialisation of Stroat and the banks of the Severn Estuary and across the wider area including the Forest of Dean (FoD) as administered by The Forest of Dean District Council (FoDDC), areas of outstanding natural beauty (AoONB), sites of special scientific interest (SSI) & wildlife habitats.
Please help to spread the truth about the Wind Turbine scam and the fundamental flaws and lies of the ‘Warmists’ & self proclaimed ‘Greens’, which are presented as ‘fact’, regarding the anthropogenic influence of mankind on Global Warming and Climate Chance.
Arm yourself with facts to defeat the biggest con of the late 20th and early 21st Century, and do please spread the truth and the URL of this site as widely as you can.
