Campaign to stop the A350 Westbury Eastern Bypass &
for a better environment in West Wiltshire

LATEST NEWS: Campaigners gather to celebrate historic anniversary of the valley they saved from the bulldozers a decade ago

The Wellhead valley was saved by the White Horse Alliance and the campaign to stop the Westbury Bypass

The White Horse Alliance is a coalition of organisations campaigning to preserve the countryside around Westbury in Wiltshire and in the Wellhead Valley, which is at the foot of the Westbury White Horse Escarpment. We successfully defeated a proposal for a new road, the A350 Westbury Bypass when the Government rejected it in July 2009 after a public inquiry the previous year.

We continue to work for a better plan for transport and the environment in West Wiltshire and the region. The Wellhead Valley and its endangered wildlife remain vulnerable to urban sprawl and road building. The immediate need is for Wiltshire County Council's Core Strategy – a development plan to 2026, to address these concerns. We are also pursuing longer term strategic goals including extending landscape protection for the area, and ensuring environmental policies from the European Union are enforced.
