- Site Design Brief
Extract from the NDP:
B1 No development shall lead to a loss or deterioration of protected habitats including Ancient woodlands, Habitats of Principal Importance for the purpose of conserving biodiversity and Local Wild life Sites. Within the part of BOA13 identified by the Berkshire Local Nature Partnership such development will need to show positive changes for biodiversity. Opportunities will be taken to create links between natural habitats and biodiversity improvements will be actively pursued within Biodiversity Opportunities Areas. Opportunities will be sought to restore, expand, link and buffer existing priority habitats within the BOA including Ancient Woodland, Habitats of Principal Importance for the purpose of conserving biodiversity and Local Wildlife Sites.
B2 All new developments shall provide an enhanced wildlife friendly environment by installing such things as hedgehog gates and bat roosts.
B3 Developments with boundaries to green space shall augment and enrich wildlife corridors and seek to incorporate habitat-rich wildlife areas which deliver net gains in biodiversity
