Soto is being very polite, I can think of stronger words. These people are PAID good money to monitor our environment. As it is, we are losing our green sites through indiscriminate encroachment on the land.
Wildlife is suffering....i.e. hedgehogs, due to garden owners constructing 6' fences and concreting the gardens.
If we carry on losing our woods there will be nothing left of our "green and pleasant land." It takes a foreign visitor to remind us with a passing remark that our green sites are very precious.
