I think the issue of failure to consult is just one part of a much larger submission sent to the Oversight Scrutiny Board for their 10th September meeting. It was a repost to a very one sided report from their Strategic Director of Neighbourhoods, recommending that a planning application for this cycle track on top of the bird reserve be submitted (to itself) later this month.
But many other points were put forward to the nine members of the Oversight and Scrutiny Committee, not the least of which was the written promise Nike Hyperdunk 2017 On Feet
"At this event, everyone was given the opportunity to see the draft plans, discuss the proposals and provide their feedback, which will help inform the further development of the proposals."
avoid the most sensitive bird nesting area and this has been informed by a full ecological and wildlife survey of the Sanctuary which was undertaken during 2012."
And the council has hit back, saying it had acted over and above its obligations and emphasised that the cycle track's location was currently only a proposal.
Ms Davenport said: "The exhibition was arranged as an additional consultation opportunity over and above the statutory consultation required as part of the planning application.
"The initial proposed route has already been modified to Nike Kobe 8 Christmas
Regardless of opinion on the track and reserve, How it can be claimed the council has 'failed to consult' is beyond me, is the current exercise not just that a consultation, and there are numerous letters from wildlife groups and bird watchers on the council planning portal ref the multisports arena planning app (all commenting incidentally on the track which was not even related to that planning application) the Hypervenom Crimson
that this same Director made to Margaret Beckett MP back in 2011 not to use any land at The Sanctuary. something that the Council's own recently published ten year Management Plan for the Bird Reserve also makes abundantly clear!
Derby City Council accused of acting illegally over cycle track at Pride Park near the Sanctuary Nature Reserve
Claire Davenport, director of leisure and culture at the council, said: "The location of the outdoor cycling circuit on the Sanctuary next to the multi use sports arena on Pride Park is a proposal at this stage.
Mr Green was keen to point out that the groups were not "anti the cycle track" but he adds: "We believe there must be a more suitable area on which to build the track that doesn't mean destroying nearly 50% of a nature reserve."
Ed Green, chief executive of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, says in a letter to city councillors: "In clearly and deliberately planning to destroy a significant area of a local nature reserve and by failing to consult with a range of nature conservation organisations at an early stage and by not reporting those responses, the council is in breach of its legal duty to have regard to the purpose of conserving biodiversity in the exercise of its functions."
This is a abuse and breach of their powers if they approve development on Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Kyrie Irving any part of the designated open space wild sanctuary. I hope the Wild Life Trust seek a challenge to stop the Council They are setting a legal precedent and undermine their own planning policy . Had it been any one else it would have been booted into touch. Self serving members are pushing this in a desperate grab for glory of the unsustainable 27 mililon velodrome ( white elephant ) which is going to be a huge burden on the tax payer leading to more cuts in essential services to fund it down the years.
I have to agree the council planners will always bend rules to suite their political masters aims. his project should not have gone on Pride Park, no parking and being reduced more with Pride Plaza, limited access (despite what they state), use limited by football matches taking priority, congestion throughout most of the year now breaching care and duty to protect wildlife and endangered species. This project would have fitted in easily at Moorways, have been readily accessible from M1/M6, had parking available on site and nearby, would not be affected by football, seasonal traffic or have impacted on wildlife sanctuary. Once again 'named prestige area chosen' over value area.

no one can claim ignorance on the consultation
Back in July a senior conservation planner from the Regional Office of RSPB requested the Council send it information about the proposal when the exhibition was staged, but they declined. Thus, it seemed, it could be in breach of section 40 of the Natural Environment Rural Communities Act 2006. It is suggested that in clearly and deliberately planning to destroy a significant area of a LNR, and by not consulting nature conservation organisations at an early stage, and by not reporting those responses, the Council could be in breach of its legal duty to have regard to the purpose of conserving biodiversity in the exercise of its functions.
An exhibition on the plans was held at Pride Park in July of this year.
