…they've paved paradise…and put up a parking lot!
They're planning to put 13 4-bedroomed, two & three storey dwellings, with double garages, on the land behind the pool at the Thimblemill Recreation ground. You can see all of the planning documents, including a habitat and protective species report here
Some local people think it is a bad idea, and believe the people of the area should be included as protective species as well as the wildlife! If you agree with them…you could sign their petition to the planning authorities here
