I have been contacted by a constituent who states 'We are very concerned about a proposed building development right next to the Greenwich Ecology Park. The proposals are for a tower block which will shade the park and cause damage to the habitats. There has been a proposal in the past which did not involve a tall building and did not cast shade on the park. The Ecology Park is the home of many animal and plant species and it is a wonderful peaceful place for residents and visitors. We know that housing development is also important but I am sure you would not want the wrong kind of development, one that would impact negatively on the environment. Please let us know the GLA's position on the balance between housing and biodiversity in such planning applications.'
