Planning Application submitted for new ecological resource in Criftins, Ellesmere, Shropshire.

ECOLOGICAL RESOURCE CREATION
CRIFTINS, ELLESMERE, SHROPSHIRE.

Planning Application for the creation of a new ecological resource in Criftins Ellesmere submitted to Shropshire County Council.

This project is owned and run by En-Plan in order to develop both an ecological resource for wildlife and the creation of a  new apple orchard to create a small scale agricultural resource.  We are bringing to bear our experience in the development field to create a development that gives back to the environment as a whole.  The scheme upon completion will be open to local community groups for use and will provide enhance,mnt to the immediate locality.

The site is located just outside of Dudleston Heath (also referred to as Criftins) which is a village in north-west Shropshire, England. It is located on the B5068 road between Ellesmere and St Martin's and is part of Ellesmere Rural civil parish. The Wales-England is border is located just to the north.

The village consists of a local post office (now situated inside the Parish Hall), and a working men's club, in addition to the Parish Hall. The main source of income in the area is farming which provides jobs for many people of the local area. The reason for the high amount of farming is that the majority of land in the area is taken up by fields and the high clay content in the ground provides minerals for the growth of crops. Others from the community commute to nearby towns such as Ellesmere, Oswestry or Shrewsbury as the village is served by the 53 bus route stopping outside the Parish Hall.​

The challenges facing En-Plan with the and are the position of the land outside of the development boundary for Criftins which for agriculture does not present an issue but for dispersed commercial or residential development this would prove to be an issue as it would go against the adopted planning policy for Shropshire. However, adopted policy supports the creation of new ecological assets and benefits from Central Government support.

En-Plan have worked with Design with Nature to create a landscaping plan for a new ecological resource and apple orchard that will allow for the land to create a resource for both animals and humans in the environment and the food that will be created on the land.

The planning application was subsequently submitted to Shropshire County Council Planning Department and in particular the northern team that covers Ellesmere and was formerly the North Shropshire Council area prior to Shropshire becoming a unitary authority.

The drainage issues have been approved by the Councils drainage officer but the issue facing En-Plan at present is the presence or suspected presence of Great Crested Newts in the locality and more survey work has been requested by Shropshire County Council Ecologists.
