BAT MITIGATION: WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

We are asking HS2 to protect the Oaks and rich Ecology on the South Side of Leather Lane which provides an irreplaceable bat corridor and natural mitigation. The lower photo here is of HS2’s “mitigation” at Jones Hill Wood, which looks like a graveyard to me. The other is very much alive and natural mitigation for bats at Leather Lane – if you were a bat, what would you chose?  

 

Benefits of routing Leather Lane to the North side:

• Save 600 metres of ancient oak trees, Ecology and Biodiversity 

• Protect critical and irreplaceable bat corridor 

• Save the high banks and preserve the Holloway 

• Natural Screening – the trees will continue to protect properties, landowners and residents from the noise, air pollution and light pollution 

• Prevent future flooding as removing trees will give rise to surface run off and flooding

• Minimise Earthworks as less earth to move on the Northern Side 

• Save money – less felling, less security, less earthworks, shorter road

• Restoring harmony and re-establishing good relationships with the community
