Chattenden Woods and Lodge Hill Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)

The Parish Council are pleased to say it received today a letter from Natural England detailing the news that they have reviewed the notification of Chattenden Woods SSSI and enlarged the SSSI boundary to include more land of special interest

The enlarged site is now known as Chattenden Woods and Lodge Hill SSSI and the notification takes effect immediately

George Crozer said

“A ¬†development on such a massive scale as Lodge Hill, demands very careful investigation prior to consent. ¬†Today (14th March 2013) English Nature announced it will designate the site as a “Site of Special Scientific Interest” (SSSI), because of its significant population of Nightingales. This highlights the lack of a thorough investigation into the suitability of the site for development.
I am fearful that the access to the site via one single route (A228), the impact on Junction 1 of the M2 (Cobham interchange) and other aspects of the proposals have received similarly scant attention.”
