There are various environmental issues that will need to be carefully assessed and considered in detail. These include:
The site is situated in a long established ‘Open Break’ between the settlements of Newark and Farndon. The Landscape and Visual Appraisal has identified a number of viewpoints to assess any impacts the scheme may have upon the spatial relationship between Farndon and Newark and also the landscape and character of the area.
Data on how traffic moves and flows around the area will be collated. Forecast vehicle and pedestrian journeys arising from the scheme will be carefully assessed to ensure that safe and convenient access is provided.
The flood risk potential from the River Devon and any impacts arising from the drainage of the site will be carefully examined to ensure that no floodplain storage is lost and the drainage of the site be can managed as sustainably as possible.
Ensuring that any significant archaeological remains that may be present are preserved and the heritage of the area is conserved.
An Ecological Assessment will be undertaken to identify if any important habitats that need to be protected exist. Through the scheme we will be looking at ways to create new habitants to attract wildlife as well as to promote and enhance ecological value and biodiversity.
Investigations will be carried out to ensure that nearby residents are not unduly effected.
In formulating these development proposals a comprehensive site assessment has been carried out and a series of technical studies have been undertaken to ensure that the proposed development will not result in any adverse impacts on the environment or the local community.
