Update on Guisborough habitat destruction

After meeting residents and Councillor Graham Jeffery in Hutton ward on Friday to discuss the site clearance off Meynell Avenue, I sat down with your local Conservative councillors. As promised, today we have written to the landowner, the contractor and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council expressing our concerns.

We have requested details of the legally required ecological surveys which should have been carried out prior to the clearance work, and have also written to Natural England to ask for their specialist guidance.

A copy of our letter to the landowner is attached and I will provide a further update in due course.
