TBHSPA is under threat from high density urbanisation

The TBHSPA is under threat from the west of the Borough and A46 ‘strategic site’. Research has shown that relentless encroachment on habitat is having a devastating impact on remaining wildlife. Predation and disturbance by increased number of cats and dogs, 187 cats (cat ownership being 17/100 households) and 264 dogs (dog
ownership being 24/100 households) and by people (potential fires and vandalism of trees) from A46 would have a severe impact on the TBHSPA. There is no robust evidence in the Habitats report of of monitored air quality, NoX and C02 pollution impacting the TBHSPA.

GBC should apply constraints when calculating the overall housing target in the Borough because of the TBHSPA (NPPF). GBC has not applied constraints so are compromising a sensitive ‘designated wildlife sites and landscapes for pro development. A46 is an ‘unsustainable’ development so therefore fails Policy 5.
