Campaigning against highway development
Groups in the UK were campaigning for 8 years to stop the construction of a road through Oxleas Wood. Following two extensive public enquiries, a constant stream of organized events which kept Oxleas in the news, a High Court action by local residents and criticism from the European Commission, the British government announced in 1993 that it would abandon its plans to build the road through the wood.
