Question 37:

Representation ID: 24825

Received: 20/10/2017

Respondent: Ipswich Wildlife Group

Representation Summary:

The existing countryside areas form a green buffer between settlements, providing welcome areas of exercise and relaxation for residents and valuable habitat for wildlife.

A - A small-scale development that included habitat for reptiles and other wildlife could be part of the desired green rim.

B - This area alongside the A14 main wildlife corridor is woodland, therefore unsuitable.

C - This area is also in the A14 wildlife corridor and would need a habitat survey to identify existing wildlife value before any development could be considered.

D - This is a small area of an arable field - not feasible on its own.

E and F - Wildlife and habitat surveys would be needed to establish the value of the site. The site is located in the green rim and a major wildlife corridor, so any development should enhance wildlife value and create new semi-natural open space as part of the green rim (with links to the new Garden Suburb country park).

G - This site requires wildlife and habitat surveys. It would be the most suitable extension to the new Garden Suburb country park.

H to L - The hedgerows on this site should be protected. Small-scale development should include a semi-natural open space as part of the green rim.

M to O - Currently arable land so there is scope to create new natural habitats and green space that would add to the wildlife corridor and green rim.

P - Part of Orwell Country Park and A14 wildlife corridor, so not appropriate for development.

Q - Part of Belstead Brook Park and Local Nature Reserve status so not developable.

R - Unsuitable as adjacent to Belstead Brook an important wildlife corridor and likely to flood.

Question 93:

Representation ID: 24828

Received: 20/10/2017

Respondent: Ipswich Wildlife Group

In addition to the new Garden Suburb country park, more natural greenspace will be needed for the benefit of the increased population and for wildlife. Expansion of natural greenspace around the green rim is vital to increase accessibility to more residents.
