We Can't Build Houses Now Because Of The Bird Population

Recommended Posts

Just caught this discussion now. Medway Council trying to permit development owned by Land Securities.

Concerns about bird population!

Never mind humans,

Simon Jenkins is on.

They obviously needed a bird brain for the studio discussion.

Love to see what type of house Simon Jenkins lives in. I suspect its "under occupied."

He admitted to having at least two homes in Britain I believe. Every time Simon Jenkins is interviewed about housing, the first question should be to ask how many houses he is currently occupying, and the second should be to ask how many houses would need to be built in Britain for everybody to live the way he does.

I would go further and advocate the demolition of National Trust properties. Most are in the "green belt" and are unsustainable and should revert the land back to natural wood land so that birds and wildlife can flourish as nature intended. :rolleyes:

Mabey's story had a sting in the tail. Last year, the BTO nightingale survey revealed that Lodge Hill on the Medway's Hoo peninsula was home to probably the biggest concentration of nightingales in Britain – some 90 pairs, or 2% of the remaining population. "If there is a better nightingale site in Britain, we don't know of it," said the BTO. Natural England immediately declared Lodge Hill a site of special scientific interest.

The result has been fury from Medway council and the property developers Land Securities. They had chosen Lodge Hill for an estate of 5,000 houses. The council leader, Rodney Chambers, asked: "What hope does the country have of beating the economic downturn when infrastructure and housing projects like this are being stalled?" As for the nightingales, the government has offered what it calls a "biodiversity offsetting scoping report". This is Whitehall-speak for telling the birds to go somewhere else.
