OBJECT Rebecca White

Summary:

I object to Site PA46 Barton in Fabis and believe that this site should be removed from the minerals local plan. Barton in Fabis is an unspoilt rural farming community, which should be valued and retained. The river frontage provides a valuable green lung for the city of Nottingham and there would be considerable damage to wildlife sites in the area. The effect on the village and surrounding area would be enormous. There would be an increase to the already high volume of lorry traffic using the local roads. I have not responded on this issue before.

OBJECT Dr Marion Potschin

Summary:

- the plan does not take the wider social and environmental costs of the proposed site at Barton into account

- the social and environmental benefits provided by the site should be properly taken into account - especially the health benefits associated with local green space.

- this proposal damages the green infrastructure of south Nottinghamshire and the economic and social competitiveness of the region.

OBJECT Mr Matthew Haines-Young

Summary:

I grew up in the area and attended a city center school and having green space such as this nearby is incredibly important. We were taken to walk along the bridleway by clifton as part of our Duke of Edinburghs award, and we visited Attenbourgh nature reserve to see the wildlife on many occasions. I still return to the area frequently and am very concerned about the proposals. Nottingmam could lose a valuble green space close to the city center, and potentially impact upon the nature reserve at attenbourgh.

OBJECT Mr Andrew Kelly

Summary:

I object strongly to this proposal. This a unique and beautiful part of the Trent Valley way and a vital green lung for Nottingham. The area is a rich and diverse habitat for a wide variety of wildlife including rare migrants like the Hobby - one of the few sites in the Midlands where you have a good chance to see this impressive raptor. To proceed will devastate this area and be a disaster for local residents, walkers, cyclists and other recreational users.

OBJECT Mrs Lynda Blackburn

Summary:

The proposed site would run alongside, and at one point cut through, The Trent Valley Way that is the only off road route between the villages of Thrumpton, Barton in Fabis and Clifton,(including two SINCs) that are bordered on one side by the River and the other by the A453. The noise, dust and vehicle access would ruin this peaceful amenity which is used regularly by horse riders, walkers and cyclists; residents and visitors to the area who use it as a link to other destinations.

OBJECT Dr Selene Huntley

Summary:

I formally object to the proposal for the siting of a sand and gravel pit in Barton-in-Fabis. This proposed pit will not only dessimate this beautiful area of considerable conservational and archeological importance but will also remove a much utilised leisure space that is greatly valued by the local and wider community. The destruction of an area with such an abundance of attributes cannot be undone nor can its rich heritage be replaced.

OBJECT Mrs Audrey Crosse

Summary:

The area around Barton-in-Fabis has little land available to the general publlic for walking, birdwatching, riding, and generally enjoying the peace of the countryside.
Mineral workings in this area would also be of detrimental impact to the Attenborough Nature Reserve and likely increase flooding in the areas of Wilford, Colwick and Burton Joyce.

OBJECT Mrs Brenda Sparkes

Summary:

I have not previously responded to this consultation but wish to do so now and object most strongly to the proposal on the grounds of proximity of the site to the village and the loss of high quality open space for recreational purposes, this is an area or outstanding beauty. I am most concerned by the unknown impact on flood risk in an area already subject to floods.

OBJECT Andrew Henderson

Summary:

Firstly, how much more countryside are we going to give up in this area? This is a prime walking/cycling/riding spot - one of few that is safe and away from traffic and rich in wildife.

Secondly, as a daily commuter on the A453 is it feasible that this new road can take additional traffic from the new tram Park & Ride, the proposed 3,000 new houses on Greenbelt land outside of Clifton and the addition of artic lorries from the gravel pit!

OBJECT Ms Stephanie Sarsfield

Summary:

This proposal negatively affects horse riders who regularly use the bridle path and the livery businesses associated with this activity. Many people use the area for walking, wildlife spotting and dog walking including people from the deprived areas of clifton estate for whom it is literally a 'breath of fresh air'. There are endangered resident bird species in the area. The area has a unique history dating back to the stoneage.

OBJECT Mr Christoipher Bowerman

Summary:

I object to the proposal in that the proximity of the site to the village will result in a loss of high quality open space for recreational purpose, noise, dust and visual intrusion affecting the whole community. There will be a negative impact on property prices and house saleability and unknown impacts on flood risk.

OBJECT Mr Martin Brandon-Bravo

Summary:

Given the plan in late 2013 did not include a possible site in Barton in Fabis, it is inconceivable that it should now be included with grossly insufficient time for a rational and objective response by the Pariah and residents. The parish council were only informed on 8th May, and informed that it would have been inappropriate for them to have been informed any earlier. I believe such action be capable of challenge in law.
