We’ve just been sent a heads-up that Somerset County Council are planning to sell off three parcels of land in the Quantocks AONB, including Great Wood. Clearly this is of interest to mountain bikers and the deadline for public responses to the plan is this Friday, 23rd December, so now is the time to get involved if you’re concerned.

Here’s the story on the BBC website, the relevant thread on our forum, and here’s the petition to sign if you wish to register an objection.

  6. Signed, over 850 now!

  8. what if this goes through? the begining of the end for access to the countryside?
    houses or factorys built everywhere? woodlands dug up and flattened?
    the whole thing stinks of back handers to developers or is it just me?
