I am all in favour of protecting rare species of plants at sites around the country. However when people are building sites especially to become SSSIs then I think we have to draw the line.
It is not acceptable to dredge a section of the Grantham Canal at a cost of £179,000 to promote the growth or a rare ‘pond’ plant that isn’t even growing in the canal yet. Why not plant it in a …………. pond?
CRT are dredging the Grantham Canal between Harby and Redmile so that plants that are being propagated by college students at Brooksby Melton College, can planted in the spring once the dredging work has been completed.
When the Grantham Canal opens (if it ever does) these people will want to control or even prevent boats going down the line.
How fecking stupid can CRT be!
I have a vision from this of Ninja Nature Terrorists sneaking out in the black of night planting rare plants to justify their own existence. I suppose the more rare plants these people sneak into the environment the bigger their budget gets.
