A development offset of between 5m and 10m along the western and northern boundaries would help safeguard these sensitive corridors.
Potential was identified at the Enquiry-by-Design to provide improved access through a network of trails for walking and cycling, with picnic areas, natural play spaces, bridle ways and areas for dog walking and bird watching. Farm or grazing land will also be maintained and areas created for community allotments.
There will be no "development offset" at the northern edge of the large supermarket and carpark.
The best that can be said relating to this heading of "ecology" is the damage done before the supermarket and carpark planning application has even been heard by the planning committee.
