'Obvious' signage needed for conservation area

Warning signs are part of a proposal for the improvement of conservation areas in Epping Forest.

According to the Waltham Forest Guardian, Epping Forest District Council has moved the proposal, for sites near Baldwins Hill, Staples Road and York Hill, into a formal stage with public meetings planned for later this week.

The proposal has come on the back of a sustained campaign over some years by the Hills Amenity Society to improve protection at the areas.

However, the society says the council proposal has omitted some important recommendations it made. Ian Locks, project coordinator, told the newspaper that whilst the group was "delighted" the project had reached the formal consultation, some ideas had been left out.

These included the installation of "obvious" safety signs at the entrances to conservation areas and regulations on windows, doors and hedges stepped up.

"The biggest omission, and it's quite deliberate, is the recommendations we made in our appraisal. Their point is they will leave that to the consultation which is fair enough, and we will make them again. We thought we had some really good ideas," Mr Locks said.

The public meeting to discuss the proposal will take place this Thursday, 23rd September.
