Hi Richard welcome to the community from Sheffield.
It will be a shame if this development goes ahead so I hope all the comments I've read (didn't see one that was for the plans) are successful in stopping it.

Hi, that would be horrible to lose or have the Reserve affected by more areas near titchfield Haven being built on. Although I am lucky where I live to see all sorts of wildlife, as I am not on the coast, places like Titchfield Haven are great for people like myself. I visited back in May 2015 on a very cold and windy day when the Greater Yellowlegs turned up there. Both myself and my nephew had a great day watching all sorts of Birds that I don't see much, as I said I don't live on the coast. I enjoyed watching the Avocet, Lapwing, Oyster Catchers to name but a few there. I havent been back, but hope to next year. The UK is a small place compared to many countries when it comes to areas where wildlife of all kinds can still safely be. We need to do all we can to safeguard all the areas we still have. Thanks for posting this. It's very important that we are made aware of things like this. So thank you again. John
In reply to John Harrison:
Thank you for your words of support. The developers state there will be minimal if any effect on Titchfield Haven, yet the buffer is being reduced. There needs to be a campaign to protect Titchfield Haven from this development as if this were to get the go ahead then it will open the door to reduction of the strategic gap between current residential homes from the current circa 250m to around 25m (this 25m is classed as mitigation!).
