The National Trust have erected a notice of works at Freshwater West to regulate water levels on the SSSI and the Corse.
It lists as stakeholders four local individuals all employed or beholden to the National Trust.
The local councils have not been consulted.

To” cope with the inevitable sea water inundation”, they refer to Chart Datum Liverpool which is not applicable to coast of Wales,some land is rising some land is falling..
They completely ignore the need for occasional seawater to maintain the Calcareous Water Meadow SSSI with the need to alleviate Winter Flooding
THEY COMPLETELY DENY THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM BUILT IN 1798 AWARDED A GOLD MEDAL BY THE ROYAL SOCIETY IN 1800 AND NOW LISTED GRADE 2 OF HISTORIC IMPORTANCE TO THE HISTORY OF AGRICULTURE WHICH WITH MINIMUM MAINTENCE HAS CARRIED OUT THESE FUNCTIONS FOR TWO HUNDRED YEARS UNTIL THE NATIONAL TRUST ABANDONNED MAINTENANCE AND BEGAN DEMOLITION BY STEALTH TO EARN £3.5 MILLION TO ALLOW FILMING .
