Hedgerows and netting statement

22 March 2019

In response to community concerns about illegal activity by third parties involving vandalism and destruction of property on our Cam site in Gloucestershire, Bovis Homes is removing netting from the hedgerow at this location.

We do not wish to compromise the health, safety or security of the communities in which we work, or that of our own people, and have therefore taken the precaution of removing the netting, and will not be using it at any of our other locations.

We now hope to get on with the important job of delivering much-needed new homes for our communities – including properties designated as affordable housing for the benefit of local home seekers.

Environmental considerations will remain a central part of our work – both during our operations and in the ecological benefits our developments deliver permanently through the planting of trees and vegetation, and the creation of wildlife corridors.
