enz-NO DEVELOPMENT - GLYNNEATH

 

June update for the enz-NO development

 

Neath Port Talbot Council have updated their website with amended plans and a habitat survey. The plans still show the streams to be culverted however the habitat survey more importantly has identified the stream running behind Brynhyfryd and Woodland Park as a "Site of Importance for Nature Conservation". It recommends that the stream remain open and not culverted. 

The habitat survey says:

"The stream is a SINC (Site of Importance for Nature Conservation) and considered to provide habitat for a range of species. It is therefore recommended that it is retained in its current state (i.e. open, and not culverted), and protected from effects of development during construction and operational phase. A drainage plan will inform appropriate protection of the stream and any ditches/associated features beyond the site. A minimum 7m vegetated buffer is required to protect the watercourse for Otter and Water Vole."

The only other difference I can see that the three houses in the south west corner have been moved slightly but still remain to be built on the flood plain.

I've uploaded all the new files recently uploaded by the council to our website with links from this page. 

ENZ-NO DEVELOPMENT - JUNE UPDATE

  

HABITAT SURVEY

5.3.1 - The stream is a SINC and considered to provide habitat for a range of species. It is therefore recommended that it is retained in its current state (i.e. open, and not culverted), and protected from effects of development during construction and operational phase. A drainage plan will inform appropriate protection of the stream and any ditches/associated features beyond the site. A minimum 7m vegetated buffer is required
to protect the watercourse for Otter and Water Vole.

5.10.2 Planning authorities must seek to maintain and enhance biodiversity in the exercise of their functions. This means development should not cause any significant loss of habitats or populations of species, locally or nationally and must provide a net benefit for biodiversity.
