battle threatens "Natural England over its lack of monitoring of licences."
29th June 2016
On the 23rd June 2016 the MP Amber Rudd wrote to two Directors of
the Hastings Badger Protection Society in regard to the serious
correspondence and breach of license terms particularly in the area of
Kent and Sussex.
The matter has been passed to Dame Julie Mellor of The Parliamentary and
Health Service Ombudsman asking her to investigate and address the
points of ten serious failings believed to be occurring. The most serious
being a breach of a former Decision Notice with regard to a piece of Land in
Hastings which is part of Speckled Wood Estate.
What concerns the Hastings Badger protection Society is the proper enforcement procedure and advice which is causing cruely to protected wildlife. Natural England is believed to have last taken publicised action in regard to wildlife crime in 2012. The Hastings Badger Protections Society believe this is not good enough.
