Standard redevelopment tactic especially for P**l, known
in our trade as stealth land acquisition. They pull all sorts of stunts to keep the costs down and swerve legal issues.
I worked on a property in Sefton park where an arboricultural / ecological survey was undertaken. Whilst the arboricultural came back fine the ecological survey showed a species of bat roosting (forget which kind but they were protected) meaning all works should have come to a halt, lets just say Greedy / shady developers have ways and means of getting around these things
You'd be suprised at some of the tactics the big companies employ, shocking in this day and age
