'THIS PROPOSAL DEEPLY CONCERNS ME'
|Georgia Locock - concern for integrity of 'fragile' habitat|
The 18-year-old from Lichfield, is opposed to the controversial Yorkshire Wildlife Trust scheme.
In a letter to East Riding planning department, she says: "As a young birder, the times I have spent at Spurn have had profound impacts on my passion, and, as a result, this proposal deeply concerns me.
"The proposed location is an extremely fragile area and is prone to flooding which has had
terrible consequences in the past.
"Surely a wildlife organisation should be working to preserve this delicate area that has irreplaceable biodiversity benefits.
The YWT's argument against this is that it will be beneficial to visitors.
"As much as it is important for the trust to be ensuring visitor safety and enjoyment, there are other ways that they could do this without such a damaging impact. "
