Policy 6 ¨C in particular the obligation on new development to include new habitat and

biodiversity features as advised by an ecologist and secured for the lifetime of the

development. We would suggest additionally that the advice of a landscape architect be

required when strategic sites are at issue, most especially given the fact that the district¡¯s

¡®green and blue infrastructure¡¯ is a fundamental feature of its distinctive character.
