FOI request (FOI208083)
Rocklands landscaping scheme
Requested Tue 14 March 2017
Responded Tue 14 March 2017
The HBC press statement dated 04/06/2014 states:
"The trees on the site are not protected by a tree preservation order and they are not in a conservation area. However, unusually, the conditions attached to the planning permissions, granted forty years ago, prevent any works ever being done to any trees on the site without written approval of the Council (these conditions normally only apply for a set period, say five years). Forty years on it is impossible to say reliably what trees from that period may or may not have been removed. A number of trees were lost in the recent landslip and it would not be appropriate to undertake tree planting on the lower, unstable, part of the site, because the earth is still liable to move. The landslip has meant that the lower part of the caravan park will be more visible for the foreseeable future. The site owners have been asked to prepare a landscaping scheme for the site to provide adequate screening again."
SEG are unaware of any progress on this matter in the last 3 years.
Could you please provide me with:
- A copy of all landscaping schemes proposed for the site by the site owners
- A copy of all landscaping schemes proposed for the site by HBC
- All correspondence between HBC and the owners on this matter
Hastings Borough Council holds no information in respect of this request.
