Winchester City Council and McDonalds team up at Waterlooville

Now you see them (trees)...
Now you don't...
The developers original plan for the ex BAE site at Waterlooville resulted in numerous trees being retained. In fact contractors spent a lot of time making sure some trees were retained. But the company that make a lot of claims about their new found environmental husbandary after years of environmental abuse (remember the McLibel case?) has now walked onto the site and appear to have demanded the saved trees be felled so that we can all see their new drive in diabetes and obesity outlet. All the claims made by McDonalds appear to be hypocritical when they are happy to chop down a few trees and encourage people to drive (adding to carbon emissions) for a meal that is only worth a pound or two.

Yep, Winchester Council make a lot of effort to protect their precious pompous city but poop everywhere else.

I've recently been in the area and noticed that they've been cleared all around the leisure centre as well - probably as a start to enable more car parking...

Gah!

Hi Waterlooville Cyclist

Thanks for that info, I haven't noticed (probably because it's dark when I leave and return from work).

I will check it out. Asda/leisure centre are within Havant Borough Councils boundaries.

I know that they cleared some trees a few years ago so that the petrol station sign/advert could be seen from the roads.
