Well done for finding space to highlight the possible destruction of Holton Heath, near Wareham in Dorset, and the construction of 1,350 houses (NCE 4 October).
The RSPB has launched an appeal to save this area of Dorset - a piece of Europe's finest heathland and a habitat for some very rare wildlife.
More than three quarters of Dorset heath has been lost since 1800.
The public inquiry is due to begin on 20 November at Purbeck District Council offices in Wareham and could last several months.
Readers would be most welcome to attend and help prevent the loss of this unique area.
