The consultants David Lock Associates hired, at great expense, to produce a plan for Felixstowe clearly stated that these areas 1,4 and 5 should not be developed, stressing the need to include this land as part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Other consultants, Opinion Research Services, concluded that Felixstowe had no need for additional housing.
For more information about these areas, which are grade 1 & 2 farmland, classified as “Environmentally Sensitive Area bordering an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty see http://www.felixstowecountryside.co.uk/ and http://www.groups.yahoo.com/ and type ‘Bittern’ in the Find a Yahoo Group box.
