Weʼre raising £20,000 to stop the Shrewsbury North West Relief Road from destroying veteran trees

Don't have time to donate right now?

Story

We’re fundraising for a legal challenge against the disastrous North West Relief Road in Shrewsbury.

This four mile stretch of road will destroy nine irreplaceable veteran trees including the iconic 550 year old Darwin Oak, named after the town’s most famous son.

It will also fell over a thousand other trees, rip up 4km of hedgerows, and destroy vital habitats. It’s a Shropshire Chainsaw Massacre!

The NWRR will take 130 years to be ‘net zero’, and it risks irreversible contamination of the town’s drinking water supply...

To stop the road, we’re taking Shropshire Council to court...

But this costs money!

Can you help us raise £20,000 for a Public Inquiry and Judicial Review?

If you're a UK citizen, the government is spending £200m of your hard-earned taxes to pay for this destruction. We think that money would be better spent on sustainable transport, or our crumbling schools, or the NHS.

Every penny we raise will be spent on the legal challenge and anything left over will be donated to The Good Law Project to help them fight other climate & nature wrecking roads in the UK. Please give whatever you can and share, share, share this appeal! Thank you!

    Hi, I just wanted to update you on the fund raising to stop the NWRR in Shrewsbury. Great news that we've hit £15K on the Justgiving site! This together with funds from other events means that we have had the confidence to appoint a great legal team to argue our claim that Shropshire Council has dangerously bypassed environmental law in approving the application for the NWRR. https://plus.shropshirestar.com/news/environment/2024/02/23/shrewsbury-relief-road---campaigners-to-launch-legal-fight-after-joining-forces-with-good-law-project/

    Hi, another update to say well done to all those who have shared and/or donated over the last few weeks. We've been concentrating on some offline fund raising such as the very succesful ceilidh we held last week. We have also been busy putting together a response to the councillors who will be voting on the planning conditions for the application on Thurs 15th. It seem inevitable that this will be voted through by the built in Tory majority but we will be ready with our legal team in place thanks to your donations.

    Hi, well done everyone - another milestone as we hit £13K from an amazing 333 supporters. We also have some cash that's gone direct to our account, some really generous pledges and some great schemes such as the ceramic oak leaves, the ceilidh and a promise auction that we are confident will bring in some more money. So things are going to plan but it would be really helpful if you could give this a boost by circulating on all your social media one more time.
