Residents will have noticed the removal of the old beech hedges in Beech Avenue and Beech Close which were such an important feature of the road. These hedges were supposed to be protected when the small development there was allowed by Guildford Borough Council (GBC). A number of residents have told EFFRA how angry and let down they feel about this.
EFFFRA has today submitted a formal complaint to Tom Horwood, Joint Chief Executive of Guildford and Waverley Borough Councils regarding the part of the GBC Planning Department in this matter and their failure to require the developer to remove the out of character close boarded fences that have been erected and replant the beech hedges as they were. EFFRA is awaiting a response from GBC and trusts that as a result the council will take the necessary remedial action.
