The legal challengers have been given leave to appeal!

Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site (SSWHS), an independent entity formed by the Stonehenge Alliance, has been given leave to appeal Mr Justice Holgate’s judgment that refused their request for a judicial review of the Government’s second attempt to approve this terrible road scheme. This shows that National Highways was premature in pressing ahead with its locally disruptive A360 works (to prepare for dualling the A303 adjacent to the A303 by Stonehenge) potentially wasting millions of pounds of public money, as well as harming the local economy this summer.

The legal team is busy preparing for the hearing at the Court of Appeal later this year.   Subscribe so that we can keep you updated as we find out more, but another £34,000 is needed by SSWHS to pay for the best possible case.   Can you consider donating and sharing the crowdfunder with your friends and family?

You can donate  HERE.  Any problems?  Any questions?  Please get in touch.

 


Can you donate towards Stonehenge Alliance campaign funds?

The Stonehenge Alliance is a not for profit organisation that only ever uses its modest funds to support the campaign and voluntary efforts of our activists and supporters.

To use PayPal you do not need a PayPal account.  It accepts all major credit and debit cards.

Our campaign is run by a small team of volunteers in partnership with Alliance member organisations. Please consider contributing to our campaign funds if you can. 

We need money for:

• Commissioning independent specialist advice, data analysis, technical reports, as well as professional and planning issues.

• Publicity such as flyers, banners, social media ads and videos.

• Website development, IT security, email fees and other online activities.

• Sundry items such as postage and necessary materials.


Your generosity has produced results!

1. Damaging road scheme thrown out!

Thanks to you, we were able to actively support Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site Limited to meet their hugely ambitious £80,000 legal fund target to challenge Government over their shocking decision to drive an Expressway through Stonehenge World Heritage Site which the judge found not to be a legal decision and quashed the scheme.

Message from the challengers, the directors of Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site Ltd:

Our heartfelt thanks go to all of our supporters without whom we could not have made this legal challenge.

Despite this fantastic victory, the battle is not over. The Transport Secretary has approved virtually the scheme once again.  Please continue to support the Stonehenge Alliance campaign.

2. UNESCO objects in strongest of terms

We have been encouraged in our campaign efforts by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee decision to consider placing the Stonehenge WHS on the list of World Heritage in Danger if the road goes ahead in its present form.

Thank you!
