Paragraph 7.91 - restoration SPD? Core policies could signpost an additional restoration document that sets out a detailed restoration vision for these strategic areas, preferably with flexible indicative restoration schemes. Paragraph 7.95 Use of term 'Water Uses' It is not clear in the current reading what is meant by 'water uses.' It should be noted that carefully designed wetlands, (reedbed, fen and mire) can significantly reduce birdstrike risk, and birds such as Canada geese can be 'design

BW does not have a view as to whether Option 1 or Option 2 represents the better approach.

Thank you for consulting the NFU on this plan. I only have one point to make about the draft which concerns paragraphs 7.92 to 7.94.

I would be grateful if you could take this point into account.
