  1. I was excited by the sound of the rare variety orchard and a showcase planting of future edible shrubs and trees would be useful. However this has now expanded into the curse of “building on golf courses” because they are classed as brownfield land. I admire Tim Smit and his visions, but wonder if he has thought out the implications on infrastructure to this site and whether it can cope with the expected visitor numbers, or if this is an appropriate development in the right place.

    Hope planning is refused. Proposers should get a real job.
