Cllr Michael Dixon, "I visited site early this morning and was glad to see that the landowner has managed to erect fencing to hopefully deter this encroachment onto greenbelt land. Speaking with the landowner and residents, they were very frustrated that this had happened on their doorstep. This area of land has badger sets and Tree Protection Orders which have laws set out to protect them.
I encourage all residents to be vigilant to help stop any potential illegal encroachment onto greenbelt land. If you see anything you think might not be right, please report to the Council.
I applaud the residents of this area coming together and acting so quickly, it really does show what a great place Castle Point is to live!"
