After a series of attempts to find out what NR was going to happen to the land adjoining the railway, it appears that all the fences are going to be replaced by 2.1m high prison like palisade fences with the removal of most of the vegetation possibly including the trees along the railway. There seems to be no recognition that the works will be adjoining a Conservation Area and the Parkland Walk. NR seems to think that consultation consists of some poorly written letters and a helpline which cannot answer any questions!
While the work to electrify the line is generally good thing, I am at a loss why NR do not seem to understand that being sympathetic to the environment is vital.
I am going to get in touch with other local residents and our local councillors who have not taken much interest in this.
