Chris Rose has made a comprehensive set of comments on behalf of the Bexley Natural Environment Forum on the Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation Review documentation which can be read here: https://app.box.com/s/57zt4arfeek3zpwr93w0.
There are a disturbing number of cases of sites which have been damaged deliberately or neglected which the council may take out of protection. This is to be opposed as it only encourages landowners to neglect their responsibilities.
Concerns are also expressed that the survey hasn’t included ‘Brownfield’ sites, that some sites weren’t properly looked at and that insufficient thought has been given to ‘wildlife corridors’.
Comments need to be in by Thursday. See earlier posts for information on how to comment.
