Dedicated volunteer helps call national home builder to account

The Campaigns Team were delighted to hear that long standing Woodland Trust volunteer Keith Wilkinson MBE had helped Harrogate Borough Council take Persimmon Homes to task over the unlawful removal of a hedgerow in the borough.

The home builder was fined a record total of over £34,000 plus costs and a surcharge and ordered to restore the 300m hedgerow.

Well done Keith!
