We support the Inspector's Preliminary Findings especially concerns expressed towards the emphasis on the environmental, community and design considerations.

As supporters and campaigners for the protection of Robsack 'A' we are particularly pleased to note his recommendations that MM5 be deleted from the Development Management Plan. This site is a much valued and popular amenity resource for residents.

Robsack 'A' should now be incorporated into the Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site of Robsack Wood and Churchwood ancient woodland and designated with the appropriate status of Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site.

We are fully in support of the Inspector's Preliminary Findings in particular the concerns he has expressed towards the emphasis on the environmental, community and design considerations.

As long standing supporters and campaigners for the protection of Robsack 'A' we are particularly pleased to note his recommendations that this site (MM5) be deleted from the Development Management Plan. This site is a much valued and popular amenity resource for residents along with the adjoining ancient woodlands and Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site of Robsack Wood and Churchwood.

Robsack 'A' should now be incorporated into the Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site of Robsack Wood and Churchwood ancient woodland and designated with the appropriate status of Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site.

As lead petitioner for the 'Protect Robsack Meadow from Development' campaign I welcome the Inspector's findings that the site known as Robsack 'A' should be deleted from the Development Management Plan on the grounds that 'environmental and community considerations outweigh the need/requirement for housing development'. Deletion will secure the future of the ancient woodlands and the surrounding wildlife habitat for future generations to enjoy without fear of development.

I hope that this habitat is granted equal status as the surrounding ancient woodland of Robsack Wood and Church Wood which carry the status of Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site.

We strongly support the removal of allocation GH1 and would support the site's inclusion into the Church and Robsack Wood Local Nature Reserve.

Given that this Plan still includes the allocation of four sites for development which are currently designated as Local Wildlife Sites (LWS), we do not believe a LWS designation alone would offer this site sufficient protection from development in the long term.

The whole of Robsack is a continuation south of Church Wood. The two ponds are the breeding ponds for our three species of native newts all protected by law with special emphasis on crested newts. They spend between six and seven months away from the breeding ponds in lumps of leaf litter or under rotting branches which makes the Scrub Meadow important foraging area for the large social group of Badgers. A large main sett is just to north of the area under question, already part of Church Wood Nature Reserve.
