BATS IN EAST BUDLEIGH: BARN CLEARED 24 HOURS BEFORE EDDC PLANNING COMMITTEE MEETS TO DECIDE THEIR FATE
11 FEB 2019
Over the past two weeks there has been much activity on the Pound and within the barn. Last week one set of the double doors were removed.
Today, the barn is being emptied of its contents.
When challenged on the activity, members of the East Budleigh Parish Conservation and Wildlife Protection Group were told Clinton Devon Estates had instructed the workers to get the barn cleared.
This planning application is on the agenda for tomorrow’s Development Management Committee, where it is supposedly being decided.
Although set for approval with conditions, it is very worrying that any activity around or within the barn has disturbed or destroyed any wildlife present in advance of a planning decision.
As it has been a very mild winter thus far, it is entirely possible that much of the Pound’s wildlife will not have left.
Nothing should be being done until permission is granted and license issued by Natural England.
it makes the group wonder if the gossip mongers were right all along, in saying this application is a ‘done deal’?
