Can you get to a public hearing in the Civic Centre on July 3rd starting @ 10:00 to consider HS2’s Appeal against LBH for refusing to approve its wetland mitigation proposal?
HS2 is attempting to mitigate bulldozing 27ha wet woodland and chalk rivers, home to over 2400 species, by replacing it with a 0.85ha pond and basking bank set up for great crested newt and grass snake.
It claims NO NET LOSS to biodiversity. Hopefully the image below will help set the perspective.
Please come if you can and support the Council and everyone wanting to preserve this special area.
