e-Petition: Stop Developers netting hedgerows and trees

open quote / dyfyniad agored

Make 'netting' hedgerows and trees to prevent birds from nesting a criminal offence.

Developers, and other interested parties are circumventing laws protecting birds by 'netting' hedgerows and trees to prevent birds from nesting.

This facilitates the uprooting of hedgerows and trees which aid biodiversity and provide the only remaining nesting sites for birds, whose numbers are in sharp decline.

'Netting' hedgerows and trees threatens declining species of birds, presents a danger by entrapment to wildlife, and produces large amounts of plastic waste.

The practice also falls foul of the Future Generations legislation already passed by the Senedd.
