Save Danes Moss!

Danes Moss is a historic peat bog and rare wildlife habitat which holds massive amounts of carbon in its soil.
This place once extended across a thousand acres to the south of the Cheshire town of Macclesfield.
After centuries of destruction by humans – and the complicity of local governments – less than 300 acres of this wilderness remains.
Now, Cheshire East Council are planning a massive housing and retail development on 136 acres of the Moss.
The project is called the ‘South Macclesfield Development Area‘ – 950 homes, a supermarket, retail sheds and a link road that would devastate this sacred place, the last refuge of an ancient landscape.

The Cheshire Wildlife Trust describe the plan as:
Our campaign aims to stop this catastrophic project and imagine a positive future for Dane’s Moss as a restored wetland that gives vital space for wild creatures to survive, carbon dioxide to be removed from the atmosphere, and all the many benefits that come from giving people access to nature near their homes.
