The Jefferies Land Conservation Trust ceased operations on 30th November 2013. Thanks go to the 52,000 people who supported the Save Coate campaign. We won many battles to protect the landscape of Coate and Badbury Wick but we lost the war. The area will soon be covered with a modern housing estate and business area. So much for the promise that the new hospital would be a "one off" and that if no land was used to build a university nearby, there would be no houses. Never trust politicians and their promises.
