We know there are some environmental concerns about developing Lennox Point on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Special Protection Area (SPA) and a Ramsar site, and are following stringent processes to ensure any environmental impacts can be mitigated appropriately.
The site is subject to environmental protections and the Habitats Regulations Assessment, and there are a series a sequential tests we will have to go through in order to develop on the site. It is critical that we adhere to that, and the site is treated with the respect that it deserves.
We are liaising closely with our statutory stakeholders – including Natural England and The Environment Agency – and other key stakeholders to keep everyone informed and up to date with our proposals. The development will only happen if statutory stakeholders are satisfied.
