WD/2015/0090/MAO - ARCHAEOLOGY
Please use our A-Z INDEX to navigate this site
WATER - Contamination and flooding issues dog this application to rape the English countryside for profit driven motives. The developers propose tearing up this pleasant field despite the fact that they are likely to be guilty of contaminating the only working well in the village of Herstmonceux. Should that happen, all of those in the chain could be convicted of conspiring to cause groundwater pollution, where they could have prevented such crimes. We wonder what the council's insurers will make of it. Is it possible to get insurance against irresponsible planning decisions?

Local Planning Authority. AR01

LAND ADJACENT TO LIME CROSS RECREATIONAL GROUND
Please find enclosed copy of our letters to Southern Water and Graham Kean (countryside engineer) of Wealden District Council, both dated 12 /07/18.
DIG - Archaeologists dug up the field noting a number of finds, seen here denoted by red and white tape. The multiple trenches were typically less than a meter in depth.
Dear Mr Kean,
ANCIENT WELL & SUSTAINABLE WATER SUPPLIES
We write with reference to the Memorandum dated May 12 2015, in relation to the proposed development at land adjacent to Lime Cross Recreation Ground, reference number: WD/2015/0090/MAO.
WOOD IS GOOD - These 100+ year old timbers have been preserved for generations to come. They have been liberally soaked in preservatives over 4 years then over-boarded with insulation between layers to save heating costs associated with the upkeep of the Museum. The roof is now protected by slate and the windows repaired with double glazed units. As a building material wood locks up carbon and is a renewable resource. The fact that this building was constructed around 1909 demonstrates that if looked after that can last. In 1909 they did not have the wood preservatives that we have today. They did not have tantalized wood for frames and boarding.

WD/2015/0090/ HERSTMONCEUX VILLAGE CONDITIONS A - Z INDEX
JCB - We've no idea who this chap is, but he was very good. The operator is seen here filling in a trench where a fire was noted, once again at a depth of less than one meter below the topsoil. JCB built a world record land speed record car using multiples of their diesel engines. The founder of the company started with a simple stick arc welder. In the background you can see the historic well and generating buildings.
WD/2015/0090/MAO - GLEESON DEVELOPMENTS LTD
This application is not only contrary to Wealden's Local Plan, but is considered by many to be downright dangerous. The A271 is a narrow country road that is already overloaded - with many traffic jams in the village high street causing motorists serious delays on occasion. The increase in traffic from a dense residential development at this location is nothing short of madness.
BRITAIN'S ARE (FOR THE MOST PART) FINANCIAL SLAVES, CONTRARY TO THE POPULAR ANTHEM
The houses proposed are not eco friendly, have no charging points for electric vehicles and no energy generation or heat capture devices. They are more of the same energy gobbling houses that fat-cat builders love, because that is all they (appear) to understand. We await comment on this and other matters from the Clarion Housing Group Limited, Thakekam Homes Limited and Latimer Developments Limited all partners to this proposal. It is yet to be confirmed just who is doing what and when and we look forward to receiving further information.
