A new drainage scheme will be included in the proposals. The introduction of a sustainable drainage system will improve and enhance the drainage performance of the site, whilst also providing opportunities for enhancement of site ecology.
Existing wildlife corridors and hedges within the site will be retained. Ecology will be enhanced with the introduction of new hedging, tree planting, green spaces and drainage/water features.
The existing stream network will be protected in accordance with local guidelines. They will be embraced within the masterplan, whilst ensuring sufficient access is maintained for their annual and long-term maintenance.
