9780419202707: Twyford Down: Roads, campaigning and environmental law

The Twyford Down story is set in a political and historical framework in order to examine the key issues affecting road planning and environmental protection: the system of route selection; Crown development; government agents, NGOs and locally elected authorities; conservation legislation; subsidiarity; lobbying techniques; and the role of the press. Written in a lively style and vividly illustrated, Twyford Down will appeal to environmental advisors, policy makers and planners as well as lobbyists and those interested in the environment.

From the Back Cover:

This is the extraordinary saga of the eight year campaign to prevent the destruction of Twyford Down, then the undistributed landscape backcloth to the ancient City of Winchester. The story is told by Barbara Bryant who was at the forefront of the campaign from its modest beginnings in 1985 to its infamous culmination seven years later. Twyford Down is a compelling record of every step of the campaign. It examines the UK government's role in the destruction of the Down, firstly by proposing to complete the 'missing' link in the M3 via the cutting in Twyford Down and subsequently by its intransigence in rejecting alternative solutions. It also looks at the part the campaign has subsequently played in the evolution of environmental campaigning. European legislation, which failed to protect this precious piece of English countryside, is examined, as is the political background to the campaign. The campaign for Twyford Down was lost with the construction of the final section of the M3 motorway through Twyford Down. The campaign, and the issues it raised, are not likely to be forgotten - the gaping wound in the landscape will remain as a monument to the great car economy of the second half of the 20th century.

Review:

...a must for anyone involved in the environmental planning process. - Landscape Design

This book will be of deep interest to anyone who followed the Twyford Down campaign... It will also be invaluable to anyone treading the same path, as it warns against pitfalls here, points out opportunities there - Natural World

The book is a fascinating narrative of how to influence decisions, facilitate change and reopen the case. - Built Environment

This is a story well written and told, and definitely worth reading. - Habitat

Twyford Down deserves to be reflected upon as part of a re-evaluation of personal lifestyle and professional purpose....We are repeating the mistake at Newbury and at Daisy Nook in Manchester, and accounts such as Bryants's challenge our ability to think and reflect on what are doing and why. - Times Higher Educational Supplement.

I was surprised to find this book very difficult to put down. The content is as sensational as the photograph on the front cover. Anyone involved in environmental protest will find the book a very useful reference. It equips the would-be campaigner with tools for venturing into the bewildering and somewhat daunting planning and policy arenas. My advice is that you read this book. It is compelling and sensational. I guarantee you won't put it down, and if you have any interest at all in environmental issues, this book is for you. - The Journal
