I WOULD like to respond to the letter from Mrs Lesley Woodhead regarding the parcel of land in Cowslip Drive (Penarth Times, January 23).

I have made a preliminary offer to purchase this land and I want to reassure her that I have no intention of building houses on the land. My aim is to make the woodland more accessible whilst at the same time protecting the local wildlife and enriching the area for the benefit of the local community.

If the purchase should go ahead then it would be my intention to consult with the local community to look at how best to protect the woodland and improve it for local use. And for sure providing protection for local wildlife.

I hope this helps.
