If you haven’t got round to joining the more than 200 people who have already made out an objection to Cory ‘Environmental’s’ plan (they’re the incinerator people) to destroy the only nesting habitat on Erith Marshes for red-listed Skylark, which has suffered a large national decline, and in the whole of Bexley for red-listed Ringed Plover and also Little-ringed Plover, with a hugely negative wildlife and visual impact on the adjoining Crossness Nature reserve, but don’t have time to compose a more personal letter, please download the pre-prepared document here
add a few comments of your own in the box at the bottom to give it more weight, attach to an e-mail using the subject line ‘Planning application 15/02926/OUTM’ and send to:
The Council at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also the team organising objections (so we can tell the media how many people we know are objecting ahead of the planning meeting): Donna Zimmer email@example.com
And if you have time your three local councillors (we need to show them people in Bexley care about wildlife). You can find their e-mail addresses here:
In case the application goes to the 3rd March 2016 planning committee meeting, please send your letter on or before 29th February, which should ensure it is counted in the Case Officer’s report to the meeting. It will still be accepted up to 3rd March. If we find before then that the matter will go to a later meeting, we will announce that on ‘BW’.
Your person comments might include:
– That the development would (further) spoil your enjoyment of what was once a much larger and more open area.
– You want to be able to carry on being able to see Skylarks at Crossness and elsewhere in Bexley, and you want your children and grandchildren to be able to do so as well.
– You want to continue to see breeding Ringed Plover and Little Ringed Plover at Crossness. Breeding waders are rare in Bexley.
– You think large open spaces are good for your physical and mental well-being.
– You are a member of Friends of Crossness Nature Reserve and feel that cumulative loss of important areas for nature is undermining the group’s work in supporting Bexley Council’s own policy of protecting and enhancing wildlife in the Borough.
