FAO Mr D Pedlow: Planning Officer

Dear Mr Pedlow

Application reference   R/2016/0663

Proposal : OUTLINE PLANNING APPLICATION FOR UP TO 550 RESIDENTIAL UNITS WITH ASSOCIATED ACCESS, LANDSCAPING AND OPEN SPACE

Address : LAND NORTH OF KIRKLEATHAM BUSINESS PARK AND WEST OF KIRKLEATHAM LANE

REDCAR

 

I strongly object to the above proposed development, for the following reasons.

The impact of this proposed housing development on this long established animal sanctuary.

 This proposed development  will damage the natural environment of this mature community woodland  and wildlife habitat.

 The proposed development  will necessitate  the removal of existing mature trees and natural landscape,  that protects  the animal sanctuary and it will change and destroy the seclusion and privacy aspects, that have been in place for the last 9 or more years.

 Safe and quiet areas are  needed  around an animal sanctuary, to provide private, quiet  and safe exercising  facilities for the animals and also peace and tranquillity for any animals that are suffering or recovering from traumatic or stressful conditions they have endured, before being taken in to the sanctuary.

 The propped buffer areas between the proposed development and the animal sanctuary are totally unacceptable and this would probably lead to far too many unacceptable issues,  to be able to continue having a sanctuary in this location in the future.

 No proper consultation exercise has been discussed or conducted with SARA and the status of this planning application on R&CBC’s Online register on the 2nd of December clearly states that `Official consultation has expired`, which we understand is not the case and this date has been extended. This is misleading to anyone who intended to make an objection and now is unable to do so.

 Access to Foxrush Farm is via a track off Kirkleatham Lane, this main road is already heavily trafficked and a development of this size will no doubt impact significantly on traffic volumes thereby  creating access and egress difficulties for the SARA animal sanctuary.

This is the wrong development in the wrong place and I trust you will take my objections in to account when considering the outline planning application and you will recommend it be refused .

Yours sincerely

HELP TO PRESERVE THE WILDLIFE SURROUNDING FOXRUSH FARM

We urgently need some help to prepare an ecology report on the area surrounding Foxrush Farm.

The current plans for the proposed housing development do not seem to reflect the diverse nature of the wildlife that inhabitant the area.

We have a tight timeline in which to challenge this report and if anyone has any specific knowledge that could help could they please contact

JET

Jet is a lovely 8 year old lab cross who came into us a year ago after she was found as a stray. This makes her currently our longest resident for some unknown reason .She is a lovely dog who enjoys playing fetch and long walks. She is a very affectionate girl who is looking for a home with experienced dog owners where she can be an only dog with no children.

In the summer of 2016 Support Adoption for Pets (Pets at Home) held its annual summer fundraising drive.  The total raised for the country was £464,013.

A team from Saltburn Animal Rescue Association attended the Middlesbrough store to help with the fundraising.

The Middlesbrough store raised £1164 of which  £582  was passed onto SARA by Dave the deputy manager collected by Fern, Sam and Barney.

Do you have any glass lidded jars that could be used by one of our volunteers to fill up with pet treats as Christmas presents for pets.

If you do could you please take them into Foxrush Farm or our charity shop in Guisborough.  If you have a large quantity we could arrange for collection

OPEN DAY 2016

SARA held its Open Day on the Saturday 10th September. It was well attended and events included a mini fun dog show, doggy games and a flyball display by local teams. Music was provided by Cleveland Ukes. We were supported on the day by staff from Sainsbury’s, Saltburn and the sea cadets. As usual there was a tempting display of food (especially cakes). The day was completed by the grand draw details of which will be on our facebook page shortly. Our thanks go to all who supported us.

Analox return to SARA to help prepare for open day

A group of Analox staff visited SARA on Wednesday 7 September, helping look after the animals as well as general cleaning around the Arundel Centre in preparation for SARA’s open day.

The charity day was attended by a mix of staff from different departments, some of whom hadn’t taken part in a charity day before.  Their help was much appreciated at a very busy time for SARA.
