Respecting the local landscape and biodiversity
The proposals for the site have been carefully designed to respect and enhance the existing landscape and biodiversity.
We have undertaken a full range of detailed surveys to understand what flora and fauna are present on the site.
As a result, our proposals include:
measures to protect off-site woodland, tree belts and enhance the habitats within the site. This will provide long-term biodiversity gains
new areas of open space for people to enjoy, including a Countryside Park with footpaths and a children’s play area
stone walls retained where possible, and stone re-used to create new stone walls elsewhere on the site
new native trees, hedgerows and shrub planting, wildflower meadows, streams, ponds and wetlands to provide a range of new habitats.
