Damage to Hedgerows - residents please be vigilent

At the March 2018 Parish Council meeting it was reported that in early January 2018 a significant amount of damage had been caused by the illegal removal of 30m of hedgerow and several trees on Sandon Bank. this was done one Sunday and is being treated as a criminal matter. Anyone who witnessed this is urged to phone the police with information.
Residents are asked to question any activity they see of this nature - if in doubt please contact the police as this has caused significant damage to an area of the countryside and will cost the local landowner significant amounts to resolve.
