A new Housing development in Fishguard has been granted planning permission even though the Green Field site contains an active, long standing Badger Sett.
The proposed development is in the Penwallis area of upper Fishguard, is a green field site, and is at present pasture farmland. In the Plans the presence of the Badger sett is acknowledged and it is proposed to build an artificial sett to re-house the displaced badgers……how the badgers might feel about this plan has not been disclosed.
We are at present checking that all the plans follow the law regarding interference of Badger setts and injury to any badgers.
To check on the developers plans, look on Pembrokeshire Councils website. Planning Application Number 17/0259/PA.
