DNA are calling for the Secretary of State to intervene and hold a PUBLIC INQUIRY before he decides the planning application presented by the Homes and Community Agency for Major Development on the Cinderford Northern Quarter, mainly part of our national publically owned Forest of Dean with over 1300 species recorded to date.

Simon Glover Chair of DNA said,

 

“This is a national issue.  We are putting at risk here not only the Forest of Dean but also the nation’s most treasured landscapes and wildlife.

If the development gains planning permission it is likely to set a planning precedent for major development in other areas of the Forest of Dean, other national, publically owned Forests and other highly sensitive landscape and wildlife areas throughout the UK."

 

REQUEST to the Secretary of State to intervene and hold a public Inquiry letter here ->

In addition, have you objected to the Planning application?

There is a planning application for houses etc in Steam Mills and we would be grateful if you could look at the planning website and object.

   

P1979/14/OUT

Demolition of existing building and erection of 49 dwellings including new access, open space and associated works.

   

http://publicaccess.fdean.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=NGZHLDHI01000

   

Part of this site is a field on the East side of the Old Engine Brook and we believe that it is valuable habitat for Great Crested Newts, frogs,toads and bats so a part of the overall Northern Quarter. The ecological surveys were done between October and January in different years and DNA believes that this is totally inadequate given the rich biodiversity of the area. There are other grounds of concern to residents such as flood risks, road access, school provision and Grail engineering have also objected.

   

We have not done a template this time as FODDC have denigrated these in the past. Please make sure to say that you OBJECT. You can email to planning@fdean.gov.uk
