Trees cut down

Protecting what you care about

Last Friday, tree felling started in preparation for the Bexhill Hastings Link Road, with crews working over the weekend, cutting down a swathe of trees parallel to London Road in Bexhill. At the same time, protectors of the natural environment, who oppose this road and the planned national road building programme of 190+ roads through England and Wales,  joined together and did what they could to protect what they value.  HOT’s Zelly Restorick was there as an independent campaigner.

Local people have reported seeing badgers out and about during the day as Bexhill-Hastings Link Road (BHLR) contractors start to destroy badger setts along the route of the Road. Badgers are nocturnal and would usually not come out in daylight.
