Thank you for all your support & for those who made the last minute demo on Sat 22nd Sept. https://www.somersetlive.co.uk/news/somerset-news/angry-residents-march-development-waving-2040050 Sadly our voices went unheard - i'm really sad to say all the beeches have been felled. We must keep up the fight for nature. Please continue to contact Persimmon Homes about their eco crime of putting £ greed before people & planet. And come to http://www.reimaginingthelevels.org.uk/rtl/book-now-for-our-trees-for-somerset-policy-and-action-conference-nov-7th-compton-dundon-village-hall to get trees into policy and planted in Somerset.

Save the Beech Hedge Avenue at Field Road
Please don't destroy this iconic, historical beech hedge avenue that has been part of the community for generations. It is home to protected species and a local biodiversity hot-spot. Developers should respect the local natural heritage, give space to existing habitats and not destroy biodiversity for over developing sites for profit.
For generations this beautiful beech hedge avenue has been a living icon in the community, home to protected species of bats, dormice and birds and enhances local biodiversity, bringing joy and wellbeing to local people. It has historical relevance to the community and most importantly is an established habitat to a variety of protected species. It enhances the health and wellbeing of local people and improves the air quality from road pollution. The local people want the hedge to remain and not be destroyed and continue to be a home for the wildlife that rely on this established beech avenue. This is the last wildlife corridor in the local area and should be retained.
Why is this important?
