Imminent threat to protected geological site

A recent letter to the National Park Authority from Natural England advises that proposed works at Latchmore Brook/Studley Wood can proceed despite the threat to internationally important geological exposures and strong objections from two research scientists working at the Natural History Museum in London.  This unique site is the only locality where the geological strata, with its species-rich fossil fauna, of the Studley Wood Member of the Selsey Formation are visible for study;  letters emphasising its importance for future scientific research were received by the NPA from, among others, Dr J. Todd and Mr S. Tracey.
