As these works do not fall between mean high water levels, and are nowhere near marine activities, we feel this is not our area to comment.

The Forestry Commission does not have resources to respond to Neighbourhood plans. If ancient woodland within your boundary Forestry Commission has prepared joint standing advice with Natural England on ancient woodland and veteran trees. This advice is a material consideration for planning decisions across England.

The Standing Advice website will provide you with links to Natural England's Ancient Woodland Inventory, assessment guides and other tools to assist you in assessing potential impacts. The assessment guides sets out a series of questions to help planners assess the impact of the proposed development on the ancient woodland.

Thank you for consulting the Forestry Commission. Your email was forwarded to the local area Forest Services email address as Forest Services is the Forestry Commission department which responds to planning correspondence. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to respond to Neighbourhood plans. If you have ancient woodland within your boundary to consider, the Forestry Commission has prepared joint standing advice with Natural England on ancient woodland and veteran trees which we refer you to in the first instance. This advice is a material consideration for planning decisions across England. It explains the definition of ancient woodland, its importance, ways to identify it and the policies that relevant to it. It also provides advice on how to protect ancient woodland when dealing with planning applications that may affect ancient woodland. It also considers ancient wood-pasture and veteran trees.

The Standing Advice website will provide you with links to Natural England's Ancient Woodland Inventory, assessment guides and other tools to assist you in assessing potential impacts.

Natural England is a non-departmental public body. Our statutory purpose is to ensure that the natural environment is conserved, enhanced, and managed for the benefit of present and future generations, thereby contributing to sustainable development.

Natural England is a statutory consultee in neighbourhood planning and must be consulted on draft neighbourhood development plans by the Parish/Town Councils or Neighbourhood Forums where they consider our interests would be affected by the proposals made. Natural England does not have any specific comments on this draft neighbourhood plan.
However, we refer you to the attached annex which covers the issues and opportunities that should be considered when preparing a Neighbourhood Plan

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation:

Cambridgeshire Lead Local Flood Authority is surprised at lack of detail on flood risk and drainage in Plan.

Plan should shrive to promote SuDS - an approach to manage surface water run-off which seeks to mimic natural drainage systems and retain water on or near the site. Significant advantages over conventional piped drainage systems in reducing flood risk.

Variety of SuDS techniques available means that virtually any development should be able to include a scheme based around these principles.

Respondent: Katie Ackermann

Representation:

Guided Busway is continually referred to and cycleway/pedestrians. This is a bridleway and therefore accessible to horse riders.

Frequently ride through Histon - no mention of horse riders in report - many of cyclists and pedestrians.

Horse riders are vulnerable road users, and would prefer to avoid traveling on roads - only made possible with access to safe and suitable off road tracks (NMU paths ). Horse riders forgotten in village planning - most vulnerable. Horse riders have access to roads, byways and bridleways - horse riders allowed access to cyclists on bridleways and there has been no report of injury to a third party by a horse.

Many bridleways/byways split by ever-growing road structure - no choice but to travel on busy roads. Number of deaths shows important to provide safe routes for equestrians.

Please do reconsider the wording used throughout this report to consider bridleways and equestrians.
