Draft Swavesey Village Design Guide SPD

Representation ID: 67731

Received: 31/05/2019

Respondent: Woodland Trust

Representation:

We support the proposal to include hedges and native trees as boundaries to gardens and along footpaths within any new development.

We would like to see planting of trees (whether street trees, trees on areas of greenspace or small copses) considered for inclusion where appropriate.

We would be happy to be consulted by the district council, parish council or housing developers regarding any such opportunities. There is strong evidence that planting of trees can help create pleasant, healthy environments for local residents, as well as encouraging wildlife and helping to tackle wider environmental problems such as climate change.

Very pleased to see such strong support for the historic nature of the village along with detailed sensitive new-build guidelines. Swavesey is a unique settlement with unique issues, especially flood prevention. Please continue to protect this heritage.
