Seething Wells is a classic case where bio diversity is being destroyed by developers who are purposefully stripping it of all life to be able to give the option that anything, ie building is better than the mess they have created. Appalling. It was a beautiful wildlife area and could be again in the right hands, ie Community, council or charity. Unique Historical heritage and wildlife site could be lost under concrete forever
I am sure there are similar stories around the country. Councils need more rights to stop these injustices. They are on the ground and more able to action than the police, policecan be their back up if necessary.

I live very near Seething wells and I feel very strongly that it it should remain a wildlife sanctuary.

We need homes, but not at a cost to the environment and in order to fill the pockets of developers. The current situation with more people working from home surely mean we will need less existing office space. Can this not be turned into homes which automatically attract shops into city centres?

The owners of a beautiful wildlife reserve with SINC status are destroying it because no one seems to have the powers to stop them. Please let the council have this power.

Not any of the filter beds are historic site there also very important wildlife conservation area, sadly the current owners have turned into a desert but with any luck this could recover.

This is an important nature resource. There are few enough areas for wildlife, we can't afford to lose another.

I don’t agree with developers or councils for that matter destroying our environment with development and over-development. Protect nature.
