Set in a political and historical framework, the book records the controversial events which led to one of England's most heavily protected landscapes being destroyed for the construction of the M3 Motorway. It examines key issues affecting road planning and environmental protection: the system of route selection; Crown development; government agents, NGOs and locally elected authorities; conservation legislation; subsidiary; lobbying techniques; and the role of the press. The heritage and ecological importance of the site are fully explained, providing a comprehensive and informative record.
