Life in the Meadow

One of the few greenfield spaces in Stoke-on-Trent.

Incredibly, Barratt Homes think the meadow will look better when covered with tarmac and high density housing and they’ve destroyed mature trees and wildlife habitat.

To further their cause the developers have even falsified ecology reports to claim that protected species are not present, then when found-out, have lied about the falsification and the significant impact the development will have, when there is clear and indisputable, and now proven evidence to the contrary.

The developers contempt for wildlife is completely shocking!

Diverse range of local residents snapped using the Meadow.

We haven’t captured photos of the water vowls, newts or other stream based wildlife just yet, but Barrett Homes seem to think the destruction of the habitat for these residents is “insignificant”!

Update 2/3/2015

Residents capture more photos of young egrets in the meadow.

One thought on “Life in the Meadow

  1. I am disappointed but not surprised that the inspector has dismissed our case. At the end of the day money talks & the developer has more than the little man in the street. They we live in a democracy but the ruling elite still manage to walk all us. So what if a few peasants get maimed or killed we just don’t matter
