The planning application for the North Bexhill Access Road (NBAR)will be heard on Thursday 21 January: please join us to say no to this destructive road – details below.
What’s wrong with the NBAR?
So many things we can hardly start to count them, but here are a few:
- 1.8km of ‘species rich hedgerow’ to be pulled out.
- Hundreds of trees including 200 year old oaks, walnut, willow, beech, holly, hazel, silver birch, blackthorn, hornbeam and field maple to be felled.
- Combe Haven stream to be damaged.
- Habitats of seven species of bat, slow worms, grass snakes, lizards, dormice, badgers to be destroyed.
- Ancient woodlands to be damaged by air pollution.
- 14,000 vehicles a day to be pass through what is currently undisturbed countryside, with resultant air, water and noise pollution.
We are facing catastrophic climate change and species loss on a scale never before experienced. Is this a time to be building a huge new road, increasing carbon emissions and destroying the countryside and precious habitats?
Join us to say NO to the North Bexhill Access Road, SeaChange’s latest destructive project.
Where: Bexhill Town Hall (planning committee meeting) – map here.
When: Thursday 21 January. Meeting starts at 9.30am, and we’ll be outside from 8.45am. Please join us for either or both.
