This area, located on the slopes between Novers Hill and Hartcliffe Way, is a particularly important habitat for a wide variety of birds, mammals and rare wildflowers. We recognise that there is considerable concern from local residents that it may be vulnerable to development, and we echo their calls for it to be protected.
The Council have repeated their assurances to us that there are no foreseeable plans for development on their land in this area.
We will of course continue to keep the lines of communication open with the Council, as well as maintaining pressure on the authorities to recognise the significance of this area as a valuable wildlife habitat.
