Building here would involve a substantial amount of protected green space, part of the vitally important Yare Valley. This would impact upon the well-being of humans and wildlife. Any reduction in the area of the valley could have impact on the whole of the corridor, putting pressure and stress on the natural landscape.

I strongly object to this proposal that will destroy vital habitat for wildlife and a popular green space that is well used throughout the year.

Full text:

This proposal will affect me personally as I enjoy this land for its calm, beauty, and wildlife. I run through the Yare Valley 3-4 times a week and regularly spot cormorants, herons, cattle egrets, kingfishers, ducks, swans, and squirrels that all make this area their home. The loss of this space would impact this wildlife whether it is through a direct loss of habitat or a severe disruption to the area surrounding their habitat. Many other people walk alone or with dogs on these same paths: the entire Yare Valley is well used by the public. Please preserve this green space for us all to continue to enjoy. I strongly object to: Colney 0158, 0253, 0514, 0140 A and B (this should not be granted status as a 'Development Site'); Cringleford 0244, 0461; Norwich 0133 E and F (Little Tinkers *not only a rescue home for the animals, but a place for people to visit and interact with them daily), 0184.

The loss of green space and its impact on the wellbeing of humans/wildlife. The large number of development sites outside of the valley being proposed should more than meet the expected growth needs for housing and employment, without risking damage to what local plans identify as a Strategic Green Infrastructure Corridor. The present green corridor is much used and, in some places, overused, as evidenced by the worn condition of some of its paths. Rather than reduce its size, every effort should be made to increase its extent to meet the needs of a growing population from adjacent housing developments.

The flora, fauna and wildlife need to be protected. This is a precious area
of the city which is enjoyed and explored by such a huge range of people.
It's fantastic to be able to walk in woods without having to follow a path
and let our children build dens, wildlife spot and appreciate the peace of
nature.

Full text:

I am sincerely disappointed to learn of the proposed development sites in
The Yare Valley, UEA lake and Bluebell Road areas which I enjoy with my dog
on a daily basis. The beautiful areas of Newfound Farm and the surrounding
woods are a fantastic wild home to rabbits, squirrels, jays and woodpeckers
as well as bats. I have regularly seen kingfishers and muntjac deer in
these areas too. It's rare to be able to explore wooded areas so close to
the city without having to follow allocated paths, letting our children
build dens, spot wildlife and appreciate the peace of nature. Shouldn't
woodland such as this be protected? It's ridiculous to strip an area with
such established diversity of species in fauna, especially one so cherished
and enjoyed by a huge range of local people. Wouldn't it be more sensible
to seek out areas with minimum impact on existing beautiful surroundings or
redevelop brownfield sites? I see this as a knock on effect from the Rugby
Club's successful expansion approval in the area, which I consider to be a
shameful decision. I truly hope that the planners and local council see
sense instead of profit and prevent our fine city losing it's identity to a
hive of urbanisation.

Building on any of these proposed sites would mean considerable loss of green space, and would inevitably increase pollution in the Yare Valley, which is supposed to be a protected area, due to its value to the wildlife and the human population of the valley . Rather than reducing the green space available, efforts should be directed to preserving and enhancing the green corridor to meet the increased demands of the growing population. There seem to be sufficient development sites outside the valley to meet expected growth needs.

An unspecified number? Need to be specific about how many will be crammed in. It will also result in a substantial loss of protected green space.
The nearby approved rugby pavilion, car park and access roads are already reducing the so-called protected green space, so no more loss should be considered in this area.

Full text:

The loss of green space and its impact on the wellbeing of humans and wildlife. The large number of development sites being proposed outside the River Yare valley should more than meet the expected growth needs for housing and employment, without risking damage to what local plans identify as a Strategic Green Infrastructure Corridor. The present green corridor is much used and is under increasing pressure as the surrounding area becomes more built up, the number of students at UEA and visitors to Earlham Park increases. In the thirty years I have known this area, paths in the vicinity of UEA have become wider and more areas have become trampled. With such a pressure from visitors, we risk destroying an important asset to Norwich. Rather than reduce the amount of green space, every effort should be made to increase its extent, to meet the needs of a growing population.

This development will result in removal of a substantial amount of protected green space. In line with the UK's Biodiversity Action Plan, the aim should be to create more woodland habitats and green space, not destroy it. This space is protected for a reason, due to the vast wildlife present here. You will be destroying the homes of so many creatures, only to build homes for a few.

The proposed loss of green area is unacceptable. This is protected area for a reason. We all breathe the air near here, we learn about nature, we walk and clear our thoughts around here every day. There are so many unquantifiable benefits and I am afraid that it will only be looked at in terms of profit and the quanitifiable. We NEED these areas to be kept intact.

Are we SURE that these developments are what the community wants? There will be no going back. The habitats and the atmosphere of the are will be lost forever.

Site lies in Yare Valley Green Infrastructure Corridor protected by River Valley Policies. More than some of parts. Any reduction in area could impact along the corridor and impair ability to function effectively.
Corridor vital to wellbeing of humans and wildlife.
Corridor much used (worn paths). Corridor should be increased to meet demands of growing population from adjacent house building.
Large number of sites outside of valley being proposed, these should meet expected growth need.
Site is a substantial removal of "protected" green space.

I should like to object to the following proposed development sites in the Yare Valley by letter.

Colney
0158 This involves a substantial removal of protected green space.
0253 The extensions to existing site approval will remove more protected green
space.
0154 Not only intrusive, but liable to set a dangerous precedent for further encroachment onto green space.
0140 A and B Permission has already been granted for a clubhouse, road and car parking. I suspect that this is the thin end of a very large wedge and that the
University is itching to move in and grub up more land to the detriment of members of the public who use and enjoy it.
Cringleford
0244 This woodland is protected and should remain so.
0461 A significant removal of protected green space ..
Norwich
0133 E and F. Currently a donkey sanctuary. Why can't it remain so, given that it provides a link between the green space of Eaton Park and the river?
I should also like to comment more generally on question 13. While a Green Belt around the city may well be a good idea, the important thing to is instil in planners and developers a sense of environmental responsibility - a quality that seems to be lacking in some of their current proposals
