Impact: There are many established hedgerows and nearly all of the trees within the proposal are mixed species within the hedgerows. The plans indicate a lot of ivy will be removed and a fair amount of large shrubs / trees will be 'managed' by either felling / flailing / general tidy up. Extreme caution needs to be taken when 'managing' these hedgerows due to the amount of disturbance to the wildlife as well as a reduction of bio-diversity in the area. A lot of field elm (and hybrids) are noted which are likely to be infected with DED. These should be reduced in numbers and replaced with other native shrubs such as field maple, hawthorn and holly. It is not clear on how many trees are due to planted in the proposal, but based on the amount of land and reduction in hedgerows / trees - several hundred young trees / shrubs should be replanted. The nearest green space (park) is Chantry Meadows which is a small park and would take about 10+ minutes walk from the 'proposal'.
