10,547m2 of missing trees

Consultees will read the ecology chapter of Aggregate Industries’ planning application to quarry Straitgate Farm, and will perhaps be reassured by the statements:
4000m2 of new woodland habitat was advance-planted using native stock in January 2014, and a further 10,547m2 will be planted between January and March 2015. The new woodlands will be primarily managed for dormice. 8.257 Two further, short sections of hedgerow c. 25m and 35m will be laid from January to March 2015 8.264
However, for the record, no such planting has been undertaken this year. 

Together with claims about denied access to survey for great crested newts, how many other false statements has SLR made?
