THE TRUST HAS BEEN CUTTING BACK THE FOOTPATHS IN SPECKLED WOOD
Th Trust members this morning went out and cut back all the footpaths before it rained as part of their http://www.friendsofspeckledwoodmanagamenttrust.org.uk/documents/management%20plan%202012/FOSW%20Management%20Plan.htm .
This plan was submitted before the Hastings Cabinet 2012 requesting the Council make the Speckled wood site an LNR or SSSI this was refused at Cabinet despite what it seems as procedures not being followed at the time. The Trust has learned recently that the Natural England had never been contacted by the Council in reference to the prospective Local Nature Reserve or Special Site Scientific Interest. A letter has gone out to Chief Legal asking for an explanation. You can see in the Frederick Road entrance there is an abandoned un-taxed vehicle.
