Re: Henfield Common breaches of NERC act biodiversity duty
Tim Wilkins in the Mycologist/Lichenologist for Natural England. I cannot imagine he would have condoned the destructive activities at Henfield Common. He is interested in and concerned about waxcap-grassland conservation and certainly should be made aware of the problem. This is his email address.
However, for a more formal complaint I suggest James Seymour, Area Manager Sussex and Kent. (I had a reply from him via Jeremy Quinn MP when I voiced my concerns about NE’s role in the Foraging Partnership). I only have postal details for him:

Any waxcaps within the parts of the grassland that have been treated with herbicide are highly likely to die out; the chances of recovery within the foreseeable future is remote. Received wisdom is that it takes waxcap grassland at least 30 years to recover from ‘improvement’, if ever.

Does anyone know who I can approach at Nat England about enforcement of the NERC Act 2006 in breaches of duty to consider biodiversity?
