Default Destruction of Salgados lagoon area

Many of you may know the lovely Salgados area with its beautiful beach and the lagoon which attracts flamingos and many migratory birds.

Silves Council have given permission for the erection of a monstrous development of hotels, tourist villages, commercial aresa and - yet another 18 hole golf course.

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty and would be the final part of the Silves council coastline to be swamped by concrete.

Please visit this website and sign to protest against this abomination.

Biffa I think you need a better / more complete link.

I would be happy to sign, the lagoon at Salgados is one of our favourite places.

I am horrified by these plans - it is such a beautiful place
if you have never been - you can click the link below to the blog post I have written in support of the petition - please share this with everyone you know - it would be awful to see such a beautiful and peaceful lagoon destroyed
