Many of you will have seen that there has been considerable survey activity going on recently, and we can now confirm that this is a licensed survey and that the people concerned are acting legally.
The licence held entitles the company to conduct newt and bat surveys, but nothing else. The company concerned are acting in a very professional manner and are following all protocols in their work. We expect that they will be on-site throughout the summer.
We were given incorrect information from Natural England, which has now been corrected in no small part due to the intervention of the police.
These surveys show that Haddon are most certainly not going away and the activities they are undertaking are standard pre-cursors to a planning application.
We still have to remain extremely vigilant with activities on the golf course and Country Park and would ask that you continue to alert us to anything out of the ordinary.
Please join us at our AGM on Sunday where, post the formal aspects of the meeting, you can ask questions of the committee and we will update you on all aspects of the work we are carrying out tirelessly on your behalf.
