Has anyone seen the hedge that is being destoyed in Burrowshot on the left hand side of road as you go around the last bend up to Hunters Lodge?
Aren't hedgerows protected? This one started off normal, then got cut within an inch of its life and is now being dug out!!! Can someone tell the Council and ask if it is legal to go around rooting out hedgerow???? I don't know if it is legal or not but it looks awful....this is an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Burrowshot is being shot to pieces from the antics of the locals there for sure! Time the Parish Council had a tour and saw the state of it. Crying or Very sad

I'm no hedging expert, but I drove by there yesterday and I got the impression that the hedge might have been 'coppiced' to promote new growth from ground level ?

It didn't look to me as though they are trying to remove the hedge, but I only got a few seconds look.

Ahhh, yes, a very short haircut was given to the poor hedge several weeks ago which is quite within the hedge management regs, BUT very very recently in the last few days a large chunk has disappeared next to the original access and has been cut down through the bank to the mud at ground level! and now looks ploughed. This is I would suspect most certainly contrary to EDDC regs on a) hedges (as it is old i.e. over 30 years old and thus considered of "importance" and runs alongside agricultural land so PP is needed and b) access widening PP is most certainly needed. Whether it is legal or not it looks awful. Again, it is right on the road so someone will spot it for sure. It's gone bonkers in Burrowshot

For a few weeks now the trees on the left by the new gate have had blue rings painted on them so does that mean cut or save?

I suspect those colours mark the ownership of the parcle of wood for ease of identification. When the wood was parcelled up for sale various colours on trees started appearing. I suspect it was to show the identify of the place where the new "entrace" has just been formed.... What is going on!!!!!

Local Yokel you seem to know a bit about the law, and if your concerns are genuine why don't you take them yourself to the parish council?
