Representation Summary:

HIM13 - Important Natural Habitats

Cambridgeshire County Council, as landowner, objects to designation of northern part of Buxhall Farm (including the permission path and green infrastructure corridor off the B1049 and around Buxhall Farm Fields) (Map 18 - HIM13 - V4) as an area to be included under Policy HIM13. CCC is willing to work with local and agricultural communities to enhance and protect wildlife where appropriate. CCC actively encourages its agricultural tenants to enter into schemes to improve farms environmental features. This area of land is currently used for commercial arable farming, with all attendant responsibly used fertiliser and sprays required to produce a crop. Not an important natural habitat.
