Sue has suggested that the BMERC newsletters may be of interest to members – these are a relatively new development, since the first lockdown. For example, the latest issue (Autumn 2020) includes a great write up about the activities of the North Bucks Dormouse Group, among others of interest (not least one written by Sue.)
You can sign up to receive these newsletters on a regular basis, contacting BMERC.
East-West Rail: Environmental surveys underway
For those who are interested in, or concerned about, the potential environmental impact of the East-West Rail link between Oxford, MK, Bedford and on to Cambridge, their website is very informative about plans and progress. https://eastwestrail.co.uk/
Of particular interest may be the environmental surveys they are conducting, which can be found here: https://eastwestrail.co.uk/the-project/land-and-property
“As we develop the project we need to undertake surveys in and around the area, to learn as much as we can about the land and local environmental features. Understanding these important characteristics at this early stage of the project will help us identify the potential benefits and impacts of the project and get the right design for the communities we’re serving and the environment.”
There is also a potentially useful interactive map, which you can access through the Community Hub part of the site.
