Wymondham and Edmondthorpe NDP

Policy ENV5

Biodiversity

  • Development proposals will be expected to take a three-step approach designed in descending order of priority (a) to avoid impacts (b) to minimise impacts and (c) to provide offsets for any unavoidable impacts

  • Development proposals will be required, where feasible, to contribute to the protection and enhancement of the biodiversity of the Parish, through for example the incorporation of native plants;

  • The Plan will designate three wildlife corridors as shown (see Figure 8): (1) riparian corridor along the brook from north of the railway line through Wymondham to Wymondham Roughs nature reserve; (2) the River Eye for its whole length on the Parish boundary; and (3) along the ancient track between Wymondham and Edmondthorpe
