BEDES: Bede’s School has submitted a planning application to construct an additional hockey pitch with astroturf and high fencing next to the existing hockey pitch. This additional pitch will be very close to the Weald Way. The planning application also includes the relocation of a full size cricket pitch in the fields immediately next to the village. To do so, the school plans to fell two rows of 23 ancient Oak trees. These trees form boundary hedgerows dating from the Enclosure Act of 1855. The trees all have Tree Preservation Orders. Three species of bat including the uncommon noctule bat forage along these lines of trees and many birds have been recorded using the trees. The trees are part of our heritage and provide the local landscape character. They are visible from the Weald Way, a national trail used by tourists. Oak Tree - Nature’s Greatest Survivor, presented by Dr George McGavin, BBC4, March 11, 9pm is well worth viewing on I-Player. Please e-mail or write to the Planning Officer, Wealden District Council by April 4, to express your views regarding this planning application, WD/2018/2556/MAJ.
