Dear Fenland District Council,

The East Chatteris Broad Concept Plan says that the plan was supported by various types of evidence, including an Ecology report by "Cambridge Ecology".

Please can you provide a copy of all ecology reports submitted to Fenland District Council in support of the BCP?

In particular, I would like to see the invertebrate and flora studies that led to the conclusions in 3.8 of the developer's submission - which indicates that 811 species of invertebrates and 260 species of non-vascular plants were discovered.

Please can you also confirm whether these Ecology reports were shared with councillors on the planning committee in June 2017, as they were not included as appendices of the report and were not uploaded to a public place, such as the Fenland District Council planning portal.

Yours faithfully,

Lawrence Weetman

foi, Fenland District Council
