These houses are now occupied, their gardens were supposed to end in a "buffer strip" but as built it is a low wall with a beech hedge already one householder has cleared and mown his or her "buffer strip" so destroying its intended protection as a wildlife refuge
Note the steps to give access to the supposedly wild "buffer zone".
Beech slips with larger oaks every fifty yards. Presumably to replace the indigenous vegetation which appears to the developer to be too "natural". There are no beech trees up till now in these areas.
