Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Respondent: RSPB

Agent: RSPB

Representation Summary:

Whilst it may not be practical or possible to provide on-site open space for small developments, the integration of SuDS, green walls or biodiverse roofs are still possible and as well as adding to Green Infrastructure network can provide wider benefits too.
The energy saving potential for green walls is quite significant. In the right situations this can be up to 30% over winter in the right situations due to foliage insulation and a reduction in wind chill to building envelope). For public buildings there are the benefits of summer cooling which can reduce air conditioning requirements.

Respondent: Suffolk Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

Whilst we appreciate that not all development can incorporate on-site open space, all developments can incorporate on-site greenspace. On small sites this can be achieved through the use of features such as green walls, green roofs and well-designed SuDS.

Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Respondent: Greenways Countryside Project

Agent: Mr James Baker

Representation Summary:

Very small open spaces often provide little benefit for people or wildlife. Therefore on small sites it may be better to consider means to aggregate cash contributions to acquire and manage meaningful spaces across a wider area (rather than simply 'enhance' existing spaces). This would mean that all developments could contribute, and the overall area available and managed for people and wildlife would increase.
