Little Bee-Eater Cameroon Apr 2018

03 April, 2012


I came across your email address on your website and felt the need to
contact you regarding a current application to develop a touring
caravanning site for 134 pitches on a site close to Climping beach.
You may already be aware of it, but if not, here is some information,
which you may wish to read.

If the application is approved, the proposed site will cover a large
area of current farmland, accessed by the small track (Grevatts Lane)
that runs directly off of the A259 opposite the Oyster Catcher pub.
The Habitat Survey submitted with the application shows that a diverse
range of protected species could be affected by this development if it
goes ahead. Having grown up in Climping and still having family
members living in the area, I am concerned on the impact this will
have on the natural habitat. Furthermore, the part of the A259 from
which caravans and motor homes will access the site is already well
known as a hazardous site, with several accidents including fatalities
in recent years.

The public have until Thursday 12 April to submit comments either in
support or in objection to the plans.
If you want to oppose this, please click on the link, and insert this
reference: CM/2/12.

Should you wish to hear more, I understand there is a planning meeting
at Climping Village Hall on Thursday 5 April at 5.30pm.
