Sad bad news I’m sorry to say from the SSDC regulation committee meeting today - outvoted by just 1 vote to pass the awful Persimmon Homes planning proposal. The councillors are clearly uneducated & don’t even know their own planning policies as this application 18/01257/REM by Persimmon Homes does not meet their planning policies EQ1 addressing climate change, EQ2 sustainable construction, EQ3 enhancing the historic significance to local distinctiveness, EQ4 Biodiversity protection & enhancement, EQ5 protecting & enhancing green infrastructure for enhancing quality of life benefits for local communities, EQ6 protecting trees & woodland, EQ7 pollution control in regards to air quality. One positive is they put in a condition for electric car charging for each dwelling but NO renewable energy or eco building materials! However we must still fight for the life of the beech hedge avenue while it lives! Please help and get in touch via www.facebook.com/SaveTheBeechHedgeAvenue Thank you!
To: Persimmon Homes CEO
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?
How it will be delivered
Hand deliver to Persimmon Homes representative at the planning committee and emailed to the CEO
