New development in Oulton given go-ahead after no issues found in survey

Councillors gave the Oulton development of 30 homes at Fallowfields a green light. The Fallowfield site was previously earmarked for a primary school but now there will be a 30-home project going on in the area. There were concerns that the project had potential impacts on rare orchids and butterflies. It is reported that no issues were found in the survey and that ecological surveyor cleared the area for development.

Now the site which is at Oulton, near Lowestoft will no longer be needed for schooling following the opening of The Limes Primary Academy in Woods Meadow. Suffolk County Council bought the site and will be using it for housing. Concerns over the management of the development’s open space lead to the application been also deferred from the last meeting of Waveney District Council’s Meeting.

Still and all, the small open space will be under the maintenance of a management company after councils refused to take on the task of maintaining the open land. It was decided that the concerns raised about the clearance of the land, which was regarded as open space by residents but not by the planning authority were not regarded as important or will the law. There were claims that rare orchids were living in the site before the clearance by the owner   W M Tubby. An ecological survey conducted found out that there was no evidence of the orchids but flora that supported rare butterflies was in presence.

Area planning officer, Chris Green said that the members of the public are quite upset but that doesn’t need a planning application. Mr Green said that they can only assume nothing was present at the site. A spokesperson for the applicant when asked about the clearance said that he understood that the county council as the owners and vendors were happy that the site was to be cleared and for a level survey to be done. This was prior to the site being cleared to allow an ecological surveyor team to take core samples.

The committee agreed to certain conditions that now an ecological assessment must be carried out to define the flora on site. Following the assessment, as stated by officers, there will be a report submitted in writing to the local planning authority and a written consent given before further works proceed. Work will then go on as per the report. The Conservative councillor for Southwold and Reydon, Michael Ladd said that he is worried by the bit of open space and that will be determined by what it is going to come out of it.

Michael Ladd would prefer the space to be more natural but wonders what it will be, a wildlife space or a piece of grass accessible to the general public. Councillors approved the application with only one vote against the plans.
