Grazing pens will cover 90% of nature reserve!

Sefton Coast and Country have started the preparations to turn the Ainsdale and Birkdale dunes into farmland, even though there is no scientific evidence that it will benefit the biodiversity of the SSSI. 90% will be fenced off in grazing pens.

It will cost £100,000 for the fencing and £140,000 for an Environmental Impact Assessment. Can Sefton Council afford to spend money on schemes such as this when front line services are being cut?

Send those bloody sheep to Australia! I heard Ewen has sheep station big enough to house the whole of England!!!

Or he plans to run for one? Not sure.

Jokes aside, all the best fighting this Rick, sounds like something worth fighting for!
