Group Description

Grade 1 and 2 farmland classified as "Environmentally Sensitive Areas" is being targetted to be used as a site of a large housing estate to support 1620 houses. The land borders an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)and is situated to the North of Felixstowe. The area concerned is shown on the map to the right. Whilst this area will accomodate much more than the current 1620 homes, it become the location for ALL future housing expansion until it's gone forever.

We also seek to protect the open field of Walton. An important barrier between Walton & Trimley St Mary which prevents them merging & losing identity.

David Lock Town planning consultants undertook a consultation of how Felixstowe should be developed. Their report emphasised that this area;

i) is a precious, important and fragile wildlife habitat sensitive to intervention.
ii) is a high quality rural landscape which makes the town special
iii) is a valuable and much used recreatioal amenity for both visitors and local people
iv) is an alternative attration to complement the seaside for holidaymakers and with the potential to offer walking, cycling and birdwatching.
v)is an area which, if developed, would SERIOUSLY compromise what Felixstowe has to offer.
vi) should be considered to be included in the AONB.

Please support us in protecting this area from development and leave it as a rural and natural habitat to be enjoyed by future generations as a habitat for wildlife and an amenity for residents and visitors.

This public group has been set up to vehemently defend this beautiful area.
