The campaign was established in Feb 2018, following on from the successful Save Alton’s butterfly Meadows group which started in Spring 2014. The Preserve Treloar Meadows Campaign (PTMC) was established to work to preserve a lasting legacy for Sir William Treloar and to protect as much as possible of the flora and fauna on the former Treloar Hospital Site in Alton, Hampshire.

A public meeting was held at All Saints Church Hall, Queens Road, GU34 1HU on 16/4/2018 to establish the aims, objectives and future direction of the campaign.

Under threat because of outline planning for 280 homes the campaign will work towards getting a full and thorough independent Environmental Impact Assessment for the site. This is necessary for both mitigation of harm during any construction, together with ongoing ecological management of any undeveloped part of the Treloar Meadows.

Working in partnership with Alton Town Council and Surrey Wildlife Trust we aim to deliver an open space which will foster bio-diversity and protect these rare chalk downland meadows.
