Campaigners plan further legal challenge to Stonehenge tunnel

The campaign group Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site are close to raising £15,000 needed to launch a new legal challenge to the Government’s decision to build a tunnel under the ancient monument.

The group is seeking a judicial review of the decision, and the money will pay for initial legal advice. It is part of around £80,000 needed to take the case to the High Court.

At the time of writing, £14,508 has been raised on a crowd justice crowdfunding page.

The campaigners say the new road and tunnel on the A303 would “cause massive and irreparable damage to the archaeological landscape in violation of the UK’s international commitment to safeguard the site for future generations”.
