Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Option BIO2

Representation ID: 12969

SUPPORT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

Option BIO2 appears, with some reservations, to be the better option. The concept of linking biodiversity at a landscape level in the context section is encouraging.

Representation ID: 12660

SUPPORT Environment Agency (Miss Charlie Christensen)

Summary:

We are supportive of policy BIO 2. This is the only option that will help protect the small number of high quality wildlife sites in the District from increasing recreational pressure, light and noise pollution and traffic disturbance.
Option BIO 2 also provides greater opportunities for already highly degraded and fragmented habitats and the species they support to adapt to our changing climate. In addition, existing features of conservation importance that are not designated should be retained and enhanced as they contribute to a diverse and more robust ecological framework.

Representation ID: 8143

SUPPORT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

This appears to be an enhancement of BIO1, but my concern is that appropriate enhancements may just be options to circumvent the requirements of BIO1 to facilitate development.
I support this provided the minimum standards of BIO1 are always maintained and applied robustly

Representation ID: 7756

SUPPORT Mx Miles Row

Summary:

There are many benefits including environmental and health and wellbeing to biodiversity so it needs to be inhanced to mitigate negative effects from other sources.

Summary:

This is the better option

Representation ID: 7201

SUPPORT Mrs Cindy Hughes

Summary:

I agree with this but the word 'appropriate' is not strong enough and who deems what IS appropriate? The existing habitats that exist in our beautiful countryside should be protected at all costs - once they have gone, they are irreplaceable. Special areas should be protected and never built on i.e.: the area SS0247

Summary:

I agree with this policy

Representation ID: 6793

COMMENT Mr Grenville Clarke

Summary:

I feel that the second Option BIO 2 - is the most preferable however, I am concerned about the term; as stated (provide appropriate protection) where appropriate. I feel that the term 'where appropriate' is a weak term and doesn't give any specification of what it encompasses. This is particular important to the the phrase' seek enhancements for the network of habitats and biodiversity'. Who makes the decision about what is 'appropriate'.

Representation ID: 5393

SUPPORT Babergh Green Party (Mr Robert Lindsay)

Summary:

We support the creation of new habitat with every development. Many once common species such as hedgehogs, many bumble bees, birds and dormice are merely clinging on in Suffolk. They all need large individual territory. So developments, even if they do not cover a whole meadow or woodland, run the risk of destroying the ecosystems by making habitats unsustainable.
"Biodiversity offsetting" should be avoided at all cost. Habitats and ecosystems such as meadows and woodlands develop over centuries. The idea that new habitat can be created overnight to replace lost habitat through development is based on ecological illiteracy.

Representation ID: 3152

SUPPORT debbie ping

Summary:

Enhancement clearly preferable but biodiversity and wildlife issues must be integral to all planning, not just a box to be ticked. Specifically all sites need to be assessed independently and thoroughly for prsence of BAP priority species, priority habitats, species diversity, and value as wildlife corridors. It must be recognised that species are adapted to particular habitats and can't simply be moved. Organisations where records exist such as Suffolk Wildlife Trust, BTO, RSPB, Suffolk Community Barn Owl Project, should be consulted.

Representation ID: 902

OBJECT Mr. Nick Miller for Sudbury Green Belt Group

Summary:

Clearly a third option BIO 3 is needed, not least in view of proposed growth. BIO 1 is merely the statutory minimum duty, while BIO 2 merely adds the vague idea of 'enhancement for the network' but all restricted to the statutory and specialised sites. The phrase 'across all parts' is introduced at the end without any explanation.

Representation ID: 406

The natural world is under pressure as never before
We must increase the size, interconnectivity and quality of our natural environment, with some areas currently under intensive agriculture being made accessible, wilder and more attractive to a greater range of species
