Stop Coates Drove From Being A Road
Coates Drove in Isleham is a historic & truly beautiful part of our village. It is used by so many within our community for walks, dog walks, family muddy puddle walks, children's first bike rides, ramblers & runners to name a few.
It is home to so much wildlife due to the extensive hedgerows & mature trees. Deer, hare, various species of owls, foxes, birds, hedgehog, insects & bats.
There is a planning application that might change this area for ever. The application has been objected by the Parish Council but it can be overruled by ECDC. If the application goes ahead hedges & trees will be removed, walks along the Drove will no longer be traffic free, compromising the safety of those that currently enjoy this area. There is no reason why this planning application requires access via Coates Drove. With a very little alteration to the plans the existing access via Church Lane could be used.
If you want the Drove to remain as a Drove & not a road please take the time to sign this petition which will be sent to ECDC on Wednesday 17th October 2018
