Representations on Minerals Local Plan additional consultation on sand and gravel provision - Barton-in-Fabis
OBJECT Melanie Brown
Devastating impact on area, landscape and environment
OBJECT Mrs Zoe Styles
Loss of a vital leisure area
Effect on village environment
Generation of noise and dust / loss of amenity
Environmental / historical site damage
Loss of agricultural land
Planning blight / financial loss
OBJECT Rebecca White
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
- 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 Councillor Trevor Vennett-Smith
OBJECTION to site at Barton in Fabis (MP2q / PA46) on the basis of:Effect on village environmentGeneration of noise and dust / loss of amenityFlood riskEnvironmental / historical site damageLoss of important leisure areaLoss of agricultural landSafety issuesPlanning blight / financial lossLack of full assessment and justification by the County Council for the addition of this site (and deletion of other proposed sites in earlier Preferred Approach) - therefore rendering the current Preferred Approach 'unsound'.
OBJECT Mr Matthew Haines-Young
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 James Haines-Young
- loss of amenity
- damage to ecology of attenborough
- loss of natural resource near the city
- poor planning
- lack of appropriate consultation
- poor website to register views
OBJECT Mr Stephan Richeux
I object to this proposal due to its potential adverse noise, dust and aesthetic impact on Attenborough and the Nature Reserve
OBJECT Mr Andrew Kelly
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 Mr Stephen Miles
Noise, and local effect on both sides of the water and residents. Loss of natural habitat.
OBJECT Mr John Hooley
Not compatible with plans to build houses to develop local area.
Major safety issues, particularly for children.
Loss of amenities and leisure area.
Noise and dust.
OBJECT Mrs Lynda Blackburn
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 Mr Gordon Dyne
SINC`s and SSSI`s should be fully protected from both direct and indirect impacts.
OBJECT Dr Selene Huntley
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 Sharrie Manno
Impact on Attenborough Nature reserve SSI
OBJECT Rushcliffe Barn Owl Project (Mr Howard Broughton)
Valuable hunting area for the Barn Owl.
Habitat for many birds of conservation concern.
Detrimental impact to Attenborough Nature Reserve and surrounding area.
Removal of valuable flood plain.
Detrimental effect on local communities.
OBJECT Eve Bennett
It will decrease the amount of crops and poeple call the trees the lungs of people. It measn if we loose a lot of oxygen trees will loose oxygen. It will will habitats by about 25% and I won't be able to go fishing with my Dad is the project continues.
OBJECT Mrs Audrey Crosse
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
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 Mr Roger Hawkins
I object 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. Visual intrusion, noise, dust and transport movements will affect the whole community. There will be unknown impacts on flood risk. There will be significant loss of agricultural land.
OBJECT Andrew Henderson
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 Mrs Linda Deans
A well used area of natural interest will be destroyed and a lot of people will lose their right of way.
OBJECT Graham Miller
Disgraceful use of a beauty spot. Regularly use it for nature walks with the family and for running. To destroy this fantastic area so close to residential dwellings is just unacceptable.
OBJECT Will Morlidge
- adversely affect Green Belt, SSSIs and other nature, archaeiology, Conservation Areas, Listed Buildings, high grade agricultural land, character and beauty of the countryside
- would compromise the improvements being made to the A453 and adversely affect road safety, environmental perfomance and noise.
OBJECT Ms Stephanie Sarsfield
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 David Mclennan
This proposal would devastate 79 hectares of prime wildlife habitat and could adversely affect Attenborough Nature Reserve.
The site hosts a numbers of resident red listed bird species that are of high conservation concern, Grey Partridge, Lesser-spotted Woodpecker, Skylark, Song Thrush, Marsh Tit, Starling, Linnet, Reed Bunting and the Corn Bunting, a farmland species that continues to be an urgent Conservation priority.
OBJECT Mr Christoipher Bowerman
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
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.
