Grove Wood - nature reserve plan goes to Cabinet

On Thursday 10th June, the Cabinet of Bristol City Council will consider a proposal to turn Grove Wood into a formal nature reserve.
If the paper being put forward is approved, the council seeks to enter into an agreement with the landowner of Grove Wood and declare and manage the site as a Local Nature Reserve in consultation with Natural England.
If that does not prove possible, then the Council will apply for a Compulsory Purchase Order to acquire the site for the purpose of a Local Nature Reserve.

The nature reserve model has already worked well in this area at Royate Hill, and I'm sure this one will be just as successful.
