I was extremely angered at learning that a Merton-based developer has applied to build 3 properties at this site, such as plan is beyond belief, given that the habitat here is ancient and a home to a very varied selection of flora and fauna.
|Tree Sparrow at Merton (at site where a planning application for 3 houses has been made.)|
There are some very old stands of mature, protected trees, as ...well as very fine examples of Hawthorn and Bramble scrub.
The developer in question cleared some hedging in late May, during the height of the nesting season citing the area needed clearing (to a local resident), clearly, the developer did not have the bottle to really say what his plans are.
This developer has a large estate less than 200 meters from the site...perhaps he should have applied to have houses built on his large lawn.
What angers me so much is that this is a very small site, a site which is so valuable to wildlife and rare birds. I will be forwarding my objections to this poorly thought application.
I ask that my followers visit the Breckland Planning site and voice their objections to this poorly thought out application.
