There is a further opportunity to comment on the Inspector's Preliminary Findings
consultation period 13th February - 27th March 2015

The Local Development Framework does not provide enough protection for Speckled Wood/Upper Ore Valley.
The Main Modifications from the Inspector's Preliminary Report need to be brought in to make the Plan sound and provide protection through the Inspector's recommendations.

The decision to delete MM8 site allocation at Victoria Avenue (CV01) due to environment and community considerations overiding any requirement for development is welcomed.

MM9 deletion of proposed housing allocation CV03 at Rear of Old London Road is welcomed but it does not provide protection for the remainder of the woodland. To make the plan sound either an additional or new Main Modification should be created. MM9 should be expanded to encompass the entire Speckled Wood/ Upper Ore Valley green-space lying to the Rear of Old London Road and encompassing Church Street (un-adopted) to Clifton Road, Frederick Road, known locally as nomenclature Speckled Wood essentially on the grounds that the environmental and community considerations outweigh the need/requirement for housing. Policies for Local Nature Reserve, Ancient Woodland and Local Wildlife Site would appear to be the appropriate status for this site. This is in line with the Policies contained within the Local Plan.
