FIRE and smoke have been seen billowing from the Medi Parc in Harefield this morning (Wednesday).
The site has been the subject of ongoing work by development company Comer Homes, who have expressed intentions to build 80 apartments there.
Piles of wood which have been sitting on site at the Medi Parc for weeks were today lit, to the aghast of neighbours.
An eyewitness said: "The wood is all up in smoke, it is very depressing, and cannot be good for the nature on the site."
Up until a few weeks ago the Medi Parc, next to Old Park Woods, was popular with deer, foxes, and badgers, but now none of these are to be seen.
A Natural England spokesperson said that while they were monitoring the site, as it is so close to Old Park Woods, the company was doing nothing illegal in burning wood.
